During the summer Chelsea spent well buying Diego Costa, Fabregas, Filip Luis and bringing back Courtois strengthening everywhere that was necessary. Jose Mourhino has put together a Championship winning squad and they have flown out of the traps winning three from three scoring eleven goals in three games and looking almost unbeatable at times. Diego Costa the former Atheltico striker has four goals in three games, Cesc Fabregas has four assists and Hazard, Schurrle, Willian have all contributed to what has been three dominating performances. At the back Chelsea have looked more susceptible to mistakes than in previous Mourhino teams but will still be very tough to beat with Thibaut Courtois in the nets and John Terry captaining the side.
Swansea have been one of the surprise packets of the season so far beating Manchester United in Old Trafford on the opening day and playing some really good football in all three games. Gary Monks side are working hard for each other and creating chances which Nathan Dyer has been taking with three goals in three games. Up front Wilfred Bony has been terrific without finding the net yet but that just appears a matter of time. Swansea have a really solid squad with former tottenham midfielder Sigurdson looking assured and a key link for the Swans. Routledge and Dyer have been terrific and at the back former Arsenal Goalkeeper Fabianski has only allowed one goal in three games.
Most expect Chelsea to steam roll this game but I just dont see it happening. Chelsea were excellant against Everton last time out but Swansea were equally as good against West Brom. More of Chelsea's squad were involved in the Internationals as well and therefore Swansea's team should be a little fresher. I like Swansea on the handicap here +2 is just too much for a really inform team. I know Chelsea are a great side but Swansea have looked very solid defensively and if they lose this one I think it will be by the minimum. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
