Chelsea FC are expected to make one change to their starting lineup against Swansea City. The ever reliable and consistent Ceaser Azpilicueta is doubtful with groin injury and former Atletico de Madrid left back Filipe Luis, is expected to replace him in the starting eleven. Chelsea FC, will be with their full force against Swansea, as the Blues without injury against Swansea.
Chelsea FC are expected to lineup in their traditional 4-2-3-1, with Deigo Costa leading the line. Costa, has been in red hot scintillating form and has already scored 15 goals for Chelsea FC. The former Atletico Madrid striker scored in Chelsea FC’s 2-0 win over Newcastle United. Deigo Costa, is powered by the attacking trio of Eden Hazard, Willian and Oscar.
The holy trinity of Hazard, Willian and Oscar, has proven a thorn to Premier League defenses. Their blazing and tacky style of play, has haunted Premier League defenses and the trio, have the capacity of unlock perhaps any defense in the league.
Chelsea FC’s attacking contingent is safeguarded during defensive duties by the pivot of Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic. While Fabregas, wanders around looks to unlock defenses with a single swipe of his foot, Matic patrols in the midfield region and occasionally slots in as a center back alongside John Terry and Gary Cahill.
The skill, acumen and vision of both Matic and Fabregas, would be needed against Swansea City, if Chelsea FC are to grab all three points. Swansea City, like probably all Premier League, against Chelsea FC are expected to commit men behind the ball and attack on counters. The pace of Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge, could prove to be a problem with Chelsea FC. However, the defensive pairing of John Terry and Gary Cahill are expected to play with a deep line and will be safeguarded by the pivot.
With Chelsea FC already two points clear of second placed Manchester City, Jose Mourinho, would stop at nothing against Swansea City, except three points.
