Chelsea Vs Swansea City

  • Lampard has been a regular at Chelsea game since his retirement

No player has more Premier League assists than Sigurdsson with nine.

Chelsea's win was their 12th in succession at Stamford Bridge, equalling a club record, and was achieved despite the shock of going into the break level after Fernando Llorente's equaliser in stoppage time. "You never know which City is going to turn up, if we win the next 5 like we won the last 5, anything is possible".

Cesc Fabregas has insisted that he wants to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place despite falling out of favour under Antonio Conte.

The defence continues to be a work in progress, though the win over Leicester marked Swansea's first clean sheet since a 3-0 win over Sunderland on December 10. Chelsea's high pressure even nearly resulted an own goal from Fabianski.

Chelsea continued to pour forward for the second goal and were eventually rewarded in the 72nd minute off Pedro who curled in a left-foot shot from 20-yard which went through Fabianski's hands to make it 2-1.

Picked out inside the penalty area by Pedro's cut-back, Fabregas nimbly adjusted his stride before clipping his shot past Lukasz Fabianski.

"To create a team, and to try to exploit every single player, the talent of every single player in the best way you must find right solution, the right system, to create a family spirit, a good spirit". After some neat passes, Eden Hazard plays in Pedro behind the Swansea defence and his pull back is dug out from under himself by Fabregas before he prods home. At the bottom, Hull's game against Burnley is a huge chance for them to gain more ground plus there's the small matter of Leicester's Monday night clash with Liverpool.

Time to recognise State of Palestine
Most Israeli one-staters are also unwilling to imagine Israel as anything other than a Jewish state . This may please some allies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Swans face a Chelsea side that now sits eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

"In both games we worked very hard and I think we could give anyone a difficult game in this moment".

Last season's form has long since disappeared so much so that the club are in real danger of becoming the first team since Man City in 1938 of being relegated as title holders. Referee Neil Swarbrick didn't see the wrong in the occasion, and the game went on.

Diego Costa hammers Chelsea to a 3-1 lead.

But it was the home side who benefited from the changes and Costa slammed home from close range with seven minutes left, the third goal to effectively seal the three points.

Four added times into the 90 minutes of play weren't enough of time for Swansea to get back into the game, and Chelsea easily saw out the rest of the match for an important 3-1 victory over the Welsh visitors.
