Chelsea vs. Swansea City: Lineups & Game Thread

Clive Rose

"It's a special day in football, especially for the team playing at home, and after that comes Liverpool, who are the leaders now and, who knows, could still be the leaders on that day, so it's hard, difficult but hopefully enjoyable."

"We need the strikers obviously to improve but we need the other players to be more effective with the way they transform half chances into chances. When they have a chance they have to attack defenders, shoot and provoke challenges"
