The Blues just managed to secure all three points against a below-par Swansea side with a lacklustre performance at Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Rudiger scoring the solitary goal of the game.

Since they were playing against a side who are in the bottom three, Conte used to opportunity to rest a few players like Cesar Azpilicueta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Eden Hazard. But, as has been the norm this season, they struggled against a side fighting to maintain Premier League status.

Conte’s men just didn’t seem to exploit Swansea like they should have, perhaps due to the fatigue of playing a game every three days or just sheer underestimation of their opponents.

Antonio Rudiger opened the scoring for the Blues in the 55th minute, and proved to be enough for Chelsea to hold on their third placed spot on the table for another few days.

There were calls from some fans to start the German on a more regular basis ahead of captain gary Cahill

The only other highlight of Chelsea’s game was Antonio Conte getting sent off to the stand by the referee in the first half for questioning his decisions.
