League leaders Chelsea continue their bid for the Premier League title. The Blues square off against Swansea City at Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon and there is every chance we will see an entertaining encounter in South Wales.
Swansea City finished the first half of the season in top part of the table and the Swans are now on a quest to book their place in European competitions. Garry Monk’s charges were on the verge of suffering a loss to West Ham United at the weekend, but French striker Gomis helped the team avoid defeat on day 21 of the new Premier League campaign. The Swans have already defeated the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal this season, and it is more than obvious that they know how to handle top table sides.
Chelsea recovered quickly from a heartbreaking 5-3 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the London derby. The Blues eliminated Watford in the FA Cup (3-0), while recording a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in their last Premier League clash. Jose Mourinho’s men will be looking to defend their two-point lead over Manchester City when they take on Swansea City on day 22 of the new Premier League campaign. Chelsea failed to impress in the 5-3 loss to the Spurs, but they are surely capable of beating the Swans at the Liberty Stadium. Jose Mourinho can count on all of his big guns for the upcoming Premier League clash and I believe that away win should be considered this time out.
Free Soccer Pick:
Two points ahead of Manchester City, Jose Mourinho’s team know the importance of regaining their winning touch on the road. Swansea have struggled of late and while they have European aspirations, this could be the right moment for Chelsea to travel to Wales.
