Chelsea legend is finally honoured during Swansea win

Judith QuinnFeb 26, 2017

"No one expects us to win".

"People may see it as a shot to nothing for us". There are 13 games and we want to stay top.

"We've had some really hard away games, and picked up some good home results".

We've brought to you several training ground videos over the past few months of Chelsea's players performing some spectacular pieces of skill during sessions.

But there was bad news for the malcontents from Selhurst Park, where Crystal Palace's 1-0 win over Middlesbrough left Leicester one point from safety in 18th place.

"We have to improve", Sunderland defender Bryan Oviedo said.

I'm going to back a draw here - City are playing poorly and we're on a brilliant run but I have a feeling the Manchester side will peg us back eventually.

Chelsea will be next involved in a London derby when they travel to West Ham on 6th March.

Swansea will be without Nathan Dyer for the rest of the season after the 29-year-old winger ruptured his achilles tendon in the 2-0 win over Leicester.

"He (Makelele) does not have so much coaching experience, but he has a good feel for players, one-to-one, he has great knowledge of the game having played at such a high level". This includes a hat-trick in this exact fixture in September 2014.

Pedro restored Chelsea's lead in the second-half after Fernando Llorente headed home an equaliser on the stroke of half-time, before a fourth Spanish goal-scorer, Diego Costa, made sure of the three points with a late goal.

Bet365 go just 4/7 (1.57) that Saturday's showdown produces more than two goals, while the same firm offer even money (2.0) that Chelsea score more than two goals - a selection that would have seen punters profit from five of the Blues' last six matches at Stamford Bridge. "The right way is to give every single player what they deserve".

Chelsea may be champions-elect in the eyes of many but Swansea's ambitions are far more humble.

Cesc Fabregas, who was making his 300th league start, opened the scoring in the first half.

The victory means Chelsea move 11 points clear of second-placed Manchester City with 12 games remaining and takes them one step closer to reclaiming the title.

Swansea beat Liverpool 3-2 at Anfield and were denied a point at Manchester City by Gabriel Jesus, 19, last minute victor at the Etihad Stadium, so, they are more than capable of taking at least a point from Chelsea as they visit London. The Swans have conceded a league-worst 54 goals, including 26 while getting just seven points from their last 11 road matches.
