Plenty have been critical about the way Chelsea played at Arsenal earlier this week but they had a clear game plan and they secured a point, which not a lot of teams have managed at the Emirates this season.

Jose Mourinho will now be looking for a response and three points for the Blues today could see them go top or maintain the pressure over their Premier League rivals at the very least.

The aim for Swansea is to improve on what has been a very inconsistent record on the road this season, which has seen them win three games and lose four.

Michael Laudrup’s side have been hampered by the fact they have conceded just as many goals as they have scored (23) which has eradicated the impressive nature of some important wins so far this season.

The Swans will be trying to confine Chelsea to their first home defeat of the season.
