Mourinho expects tough Swansea test
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has said that he expects a tough challenge when his side takes on Swansea on Sunday, according to Sky Sports.
The Blues go into the game on the back of three Premier League away defeats but will be riding high from their Champions League quarter-final victory over PSG.
Both clubs will be desperately looking for three points in the clash, with Chelsea looking to keep on the heels of Liverpool in the title race and the Swans looking to secure their Premier League status with a win.
"They are a good team, they play good football. Especially at Swansea it is never easy and Chelsea knows that better than other teams,” said the Portuguese boss.
"They still need the three points, they are not in big danger like other teams but they still need a couple of points to stay in the Premier League and of course they will try to get points out of this game."
Despite their recent away struggles, Mourinho has stated that he is currently happy with how his team is performing and believes they are focused on securing success this season.
The 51-year-old could also look to hand striker Demba Ba his first start since October after his scoring a decisive goal in the Champions League.
"People are working well and hard," Mourinho added. "The ones that are not playing so regular, all of them are being good professionals to try to be ready.
"You could see Demba as an example as a player who doesn't play a lot and was ready to try to respond.
"All of them, they were ready. They are a good group, they are good friends, they have a good relationship.
"I think when one of them goes onto the pitch he goes to help the other players."
