Lukasz Fabianski believes Swansea City can replicate their away victory at Manchester United and beat Premier League leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Sky
Swansea are level on points at the top of the table with the Blues with three wins out of three and only trail Chelsea on goal difference. Fabianski was part of the Swans side that recorded an opening weekend win at Old Trafford and has faith the team can claim a similar result when they visit London.
“It’s a big game to enjoy, not to fear,” the Poland goalkeeper said. “Playing away at Chelsea is always difficult but we don’t have to be afraid of anyone. We went to Old Trafford and won on the opening day of the season so we know we can compete with the best teams.
“If we keep our discipline and take our chances the way we have been, then anything is possible,” Fabianski continued.
He added that if the league programme had not been disrupted by the international break, Swansea would go to the Bridge with even more confidence. “It’s a shame the international break came when it did because we made a great start to the season with three wins from three,” he contended.
“That puts you off but the manager has kept the pressure on us to keep working hard. We’ve done well so far, but it’s only the start and we have a tough match coming.”
As well as taking three points from United, Swansea have beaten Burnley and West Bromwich Albion at the Liberty Stadium, Fabianski keeping clean sheets in both games. The 29-year-old moved to Swansea this summer from Arsenal, replacing Tottenham Hotspur-bound Michel Vorm as Garry Monk’s first-choice with the gloves.
