Swansea City vs. Chelsea: Lineups & Game Thread

New, comments

League-leading Chelsea travels to Wales on Saturday looking to get back on track in the league following last weekend's nightmare at Stamford Bridge.

We had two players sent off last weekend at Stamford Bridge. Yeah, bogus. You may also recall that we had a pair of our boys (Fernando Torres, then Ashley Cole) sent off in the two league fixtures against Swansea last season. Too much red, yo. Let's not have any of that today - at least not with regard to the famous CFC.

Oriol Romeu and John Obi Mikel start in the double pivot for Chelsea, while Victor Moses, following an excellent performance against Manchester United in the midweek League Cup victory, replaces the rested Juan Mata. Shall we see a lethal Fernando Torres today?

As always, keep it clean and keep it fun. No live stream links, please. Enjoy the match, people.
