After a disappointing draw in their last game in the Premier League, Chelsea will be looking to bounce back when they host Swansea City at the Stamford Bridge in the 26th round of the English Premier League.
The Blues To Extend Their Lead
The hosts are in top shape at the moment in the Premier League. Chelsea have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Burnley away from home where they drew 1-1.
Chelsea are currently sitting in the 1st place in the league table. They have 60 points from 19 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. The team scored 52 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
Thibaut Courtois pulled out of a television interview at the weekend after contracting an illness and his availability for Saturday’s clash with Swansea remains in doubt. Other than that Antonio Conte has a full squad to pick from this weekend and has no reason to make any real changes.
The Visitors to Avoid Defeat
The visitors have been in a good form as well in recent rounds. Swansea have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Leicester City at home where they won 2-0.
Swansea are currently sitting in the 15th place in the league table. They have 24 points from 7 wins, 3 draws and 15 losses. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 54 since the start of the season.
Swansea had the weekend off and will be well rested for the trip to London, although they didn’t manage to recover any of their injured quartet.
Head To Head
Chelsea have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 2-2 earlier this season.
