Alan McInally praises three Chelsea stars after Swansea victory

Alan McInally labels Chelsea as irresistible following their win at the Liberty Stadium.

Pundit Alan McInally was full of praise for Chelsea following their 5-0 victory over Swansea City, singling out Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas and Filipe Luis out in particular, according to Sky Sports.

Goals from Oscar, Diego Costa and Andre Schurrle saw the Blues beat the Swans comfortably at the Liberty Stadium and move five points clear at the top of the table - with Manchester City hosting Arsenal on Sunday.

But McInally heaped praise on a different trio:

“Mourinho must be pleased as punch. Matic was different class, Fabregras was always a problem and Filipe Luis played well. It’s just a great day at the office. They looked a really, really good outfit.”

Watching the game on Soccer Saturday, McInally was hugely impressed with their performance and thinks City have a lot of work to do to retain their Premier League title come the end of the season.

“It was accurate and they really had a real confidence about them in the opening 25 minutes,” said McInally to Soccer Saturday host Jeff Stelling.

“The passing in the final third was simply irresistible.”

The former footballer also praised Chelsea’s professionalism, stating that, despite the comfortable scoreline, they never looked like taking it easy against a thoroughly defeated Swansea side.

That professionalism and killer instinct may come in handy as well, as the goals scored tally could play a huge part in what looks to be a tight run-in for the Premier League title with Manchester City.

“Even at 2-0, you thought they would take it easy - but they were nowhere near that. At 4-0, you thought this could be anything,” he said.
