Predicted Chelsea v Swansea City line-ups

To be played on Saturday 8th August 2015 at 17:30. Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

Chelsea will be looking to kick off their 2015-16 Premier League campaign with a win against Swansea City at home today.

Jose Mourinho’s side won the league title last season, and they will be determined to start the defence of the crown by picking up all three points at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues will head into this evening’s match as favourites, having been unbeaten in their last 10 league meetings with Swansea, winning eight. Moreover, the Swans have lost all four Premier League trips to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will be the top favourites for many Premier League observers to win the title for the second season in a row, but they will be given a run for their money.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal have all strengthened in the summer transfer window, and all of them will be confident of winning the league title.

Meanwhile, Swansea will be looking to finish in the top 10 of the Premier League this campaign.
