Chelsea v Swansea
Chelsea host Swansea at Stamford Bridge today, in what looks like being a routine win for Antonio Conte’s men.
The Blues are riding high at the top of the Premier League and the title is theirs to lose at this stage.
However, Swansea are a much improved side under Paul Clement, and with Claude Makelele in the Swansea ranks, they have an expert with insider knowledge.
Cesc sets milestone
In terms of team news, the Chelsea starting lineup essentially names itself these days, bar one or two exceptions.
The one are that remains up for competition is central midfield, with Antonio Conte rotating games for Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic.
The Serb has played most games this season, but Cesc is gradually starting to convince Conte of late.
Fabregas starts today, and it will be a landmark appearance for the pass master: he’ll become the first Spaniard to make 300 Premier League appearances.
Chelsea team v Swansea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard. #CHESWA
