It's Chelsea v Swansea this Saturday on Today FM

The Swans managed their first clean sheet in a massive win over Leicester last time out to take a great stride towards Premier league safety.

Gylfi Sigurdsson hit a free-kick from nearly the halfway line and Llorente rose unmarked to head past Thibaut Courtois.

Antonio Conte claims Chelsea's revamped formation is the reason Pedro is now rivaling Eden Hazard as his side's main attacking threat. Swansea were ever since struggling to have a look-in into the early stages of the match.

Swans goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski should have done better with Pedro's long-range effort, but it was still a good strike and he deserved a goal for his general performance.

Pedro and Diego Costa scored second-half goals as the Blues won for the 19th time in 23 matches across all competitions (19-2-2) since Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation.

Eventually, though, the pressure told and Pedro was able to beat the keeper with a powerful low drive from just outside the area in the 72nd minute. Also to imagine the players to decide your destiny is not good.

"He's a great player in the same way as Willian or Hazard or Costa". For him to score the goal is fantastic for both him and the team and I hope that he can continue in this way with the same level of commitment.

After two minutes of play on the second half, Hazard played a magical one-two with Fabregas, but the Belgian's shot towards the bottom left corner was well saved by Fabianski.

Punters, therefore, are advised to snap up the juicy 5/4 (2.25) quote for more than three goals to be scored when Chelsea face Swansea City; a selection that would have seen punters profit from four of the last five fixtures between the two teams.

Only Jefferson Montero is missing for us against City but the winger might not be missed too much as Clement is inevitably going to field the same team that looked so comfortable in possession against Southampton - Sigurdsson from the left has breathed new life into his distribution which wasn't exactly lacking before the wide shift.

At 1-1, the ball appeared to hit the arm of the hosts' defender Cesar Azpilicueta. Above all I think we deserve to stay there at the moment.

"It is special, I am looking forward to going back", said the Swansea head coach.

Swansea have conceded the most goals in the league - 56. I've done a lot in the last six years, working in three different countries, learning different languages, learning different football cultures.

84' - GOAL! Chelsea 3-1 Swansea (Costa).

"I say we have 13 games to go and we have to avoid suffering at the end of the season".

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.
