You have to go back to November 1925 for the last time that Swansea beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, so it’s no surprise that the bookies are offering just 1.2 about a victory for the Blues.
This really should be a case of how many Chelsea can put past a side who are finding it difficult to come to terms with life in the top flight.
The Swans had managed just one point from four games before beating a woeful West Brom 3-0 at home last week, and have won just one of their last 8 games away from the Liberty Stadium.
Given that Chelsea’s have won 8 and lost none of their last nine home games at The Bridge a wide margin victory to nil looks on the cards.
We saw both sides of Fernando Torres at old Trafford last week, with the Spaniard scoring a sublime goal in the opening minute of the second half before missing a sitter which could have got the Blues right back in the thick of things.
Providing it is the former which sticks in his mind, this looks the perfect match for him to shine.
He is the type of player that the Swansea defence will find extremely difficult to handle, and definitely looks the most likely to net the opener and set up the victory.
Given that Chelsea have also won more corners in the PL this season than any other side (28), it could be also be worth having a small saver on John Terry popping up at a set piece and striking first at 21 with Paddy Power.
Chelsea to win 4-0 or 5-0 is my idea of the outcome. The former is a general 10 shot whilst the latter is available at 19 with bet365.
Split stakes on both should hopefully pay dividends.
