Chelsea claimed an encouraging draw at Liverpool on Saturday to extend their unbeaten run in the league to five games.
The Blues, who have picked 13 points from their last five games, will welcome second-from-bottom Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
The West London side, who are placed third in the table, have found a bit of a rhythm in the league following an inconsistent start, but they already find themselves 11 points behind leaders Manchester City. In their last home game, last year’s champions managed to beat Manchester United 1-0, so we don’t expect them to have any problems in defeating the Swans on Wednesday.
The Swans put an end to a run of four consecutive defeats with a goalless home draw against Bournemouth last weekend. However, they still themselves in the 19th spot with just nine points from their 13 games. The Welsh side have managed just a couple of wins this season, and they have come against Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town.
The visitors will have to do without their top scorer Tammy Abraham, who will be ineligible to play against his parent club.
Last season, the Blues claimed a 3-1 win in the corresponding and the game at Liberty Stadium ended in a 1-1 draw.
