Chelsea London vs Swansea City is the match between the first two teams in Premier League as it stands at the moment. Both teams come from wins in the last matchday, but with Chelsea starting the Champions League next week, the Blues need the points and the confidence. Last time the two teams met, Chelsea barely defeated Swansea with a Demba Ba goal, but since the striker has transferred to Besiktas the spot for a goalscorer remains open.
Diego Costa has picked up a knock in the last match with Spain, and together with Eden Hazard are doubtful. For Swansea the absentees list completes itself with Rory Donnelly and Leon Britton. In the match against Everton, the Blues were already leading with 2-0 in the third minute, and the score sheet ended up being 3-6. Chelsea are waiting so all of their summer signings can prove themselves in front of their supporters, while the fans are waiting a goal from their favorite Didier Drogba. While the Blues look impressive in attack, they are shaky in defense, but in Courtois they have a solid last line of defense.
Swansea managed to win against Man Untied at Old Trafford nonetheless, and their feel for goals lies with Nathan Dyer with three goals in three matches, while Bony has been a constant presence in the assisting department, but without a goal yet. The Swans have a new goalkeeper in Fabianski who has conceded only one goal so far. The visitors are very quick in attack and regardless of the fact that Chelsea play at home, they need to be careful on counter attacks.
