Swansea City Starting XI: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies, Britton, Shelvey, Dyer, Hernandez, Routledge, Bony.

Subs: Tremmel, Amat, Taylor, Fulton, de Guzman, Emnes, Ngog.

Chelsea Starting XI: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Matic, Salah, Willian, Schurrle, Ba.

Chelsea's title bid continues this evening as they travel to South Wales to take on Garry Monk's Swansea City this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho's men have slipped up in recent weeks with shock defeats to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, and have subsequently slipped from title favourites to third favourites behind Liverpool and Manchester City.

With those two sides facing each other today, it's the perfect opportunity for the Blues to grab three points and pile the pressure on the other teams at the top of the Premier League table - and with seven games unbeaten against the Swans and Monk's side struggling, Mourinho will be hopeful of grabbing the win.

Meanwhile, Swansea are in dire need of points to drag themselves away from the relegation zone after wins for Fulham and with just nine points from a possible 27 since the sacking of Michael Laudrup, tension is building at the Liberty Stadium as the end of the season draws ever closer.

Chelsea will be clear favourites, but having lost twice recently against teams struggling at the wrong end of the table, are we in for yet another shock today?
