Swansea City v Chelsea – Match Preview

Roberto Di Matteo Chelsea Manager

Chelsea will look to bounce back from their first Premier League defeat of the season when they travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea on Saturday.

Both teams enjoyed Capital One Cup victories in midweek, with Chelsea running out 5-4 winners over Mancheseter United, and Swansea recording a superb 3-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield.

Swansea will be in confident mood, and will look to last seasons fixture for inspiration. The Swans were seconds away from recording a famous victory over the men from Stamford Bridge, until a last minute Neil Taylor own goal meant the game finished 1-1.

Michael Laudrup is sweating over the fitness of Chico Flores who picked up a dead leg in the win at Anfield.

Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Juan Mata are all set to be assessed having played the whole 120 minutes against Manchester United on Wednesday.

Fernando Torres and Branislav Ivanovic are available having both served a one match ban for the red cards they picked up in that controversial defeat last Sunday.

Prediction: Swansea City 1-2 Chelsea
