The Blues have also enjoyed a nice break, though they beat Wolves 2-0 in the FA Cup and will face United in a huge draw. The focus now is on the Swans, and extending their lead at the top. The firepower on offer should be far too much for a team battling relegation and Antonio Conte’s men could have an easy afternoon.
It would be typical if rumoured Chelsea transfer target Fernando Llorente was to score on Saturday, and given Chelsea’s vulnerability in the air it might even be likely. Overloading the wings could be Swansea’s best chance of defeating Conte’s 3-4-3, and Martin Olsson should expose Victor Moses … and risk being exposed in turn.
