Chelsea vs. Swansea City: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea will look to extend their advantage at the top of the Premier League this weekend when they host Swansea City.

The Blues progressed in the FA Cup last weekend, easing past Wolves 2-0 to reach the Quarter-Finals of the competition.

A superb Robbie Brady free-kick saw Chelsea drop rare points last time out in the league as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

Swansea City have been in excellent form since the appointment of Paul Clement as manager and have opened up a small gap on the drop zone.

Last time out they eased past the struggling champions Leicester City 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

Team news
Thiabut Courtois is a doubt with an illness, however should start in goal for the Blues on Saturday.

There is unlikely to be any surprises in Antonio Conte’s side here!

Nathan Dyer has been ruled out for the season, with Luciano Narsingh likely to get his first start since joining the club.

Ki Sung-yeung is another absentee for Swansea, meaning Leroy Fer is set for a central midfield role.

Chelsea (3-4-3): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Pedro, Costa, Hazard
Swansea City (4-3-3): Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson; Fer, Cork, Carroll; Narsingh, Llorente, Sigurdsson
