Liberty Stadium, Swansea

Swansea and Chelsea go head to head in the Premier League tomorrow and both sides will be looking to maintain their impressive run of form. Swansea have made an impressive recovery after a catastrophic start and are almost safe from relegation for this season. Meanwhile, Chelsea have been unbeatable under new manager Guus Hiddink.

Despite a fair few draws, the Blues will be happy with their form under the Dutch manager and will be looking to finish as high as possible in the Premier League table. Both teams prefer to play attacking football and it should be an entertaining affair at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea have done well against the top teams this season and will be looking to maintain that level of performance against Guus Hiddink’s side. Meanwhile, Chelsea will be looking to stretch their record unbeaten run here.
