Chelsea’s four-game winning streak came to an end on Saturday when they were held 1-1 at Liverpool.
Substitute Willian rescued a point for the champions with a cross-come-shot after Jurgen Klopp’s side had been on top for much of the game.
With it went Chelsea’s run of three consecutive games with a clean sheet as Antonio Conte’s defence is starting to look back to its best since Andreas Christensen replaced David Luiz at the heart of the back three.
This coincides with the Italian tactician switching to a 3-5-2 formation that has seen Eden Hazard return to the top of the game. Though he was quiet at Anfield this past weekend the Belgian superstar had been in top form versus West Brom previously.
Meanwhile Swansea are dropping towards the bottom of the table and have failed to score in their last three, versus Brighton, Bournemouth and Burnley. To make things worse heading into Wednesday’s match is that top scorer Tammy Abraham is ineligible to face his parent club.
This should be a straightforward victory for Chelsea who have Hazard and Alvaro Morata in top form up top and a solid defence. They also need to keep winning in order not to fall completely out of the title race.
