Swansea City vs. Chelsea: Lineups & Game Thread

Tony Marshall

"When you play for a big team you have to take it game by game. Tuesday was a very important win for us because we wanted to stay in the Champions League, but we want to win the Premier League as well."

"Mathematically it's still possible but every game in the Premier League is difficult, as it will be on Sunday. Swansea are tough opponents and we've seen in the last few seasons, every time we go there it's a difficult game. We need to try to do our best and win the match."

"It's still possible to win the league, so come on, let's enjoy the position we are in and believe, like we did against Paris Saint-Germain. We need to have faith because we can still do it."

Swansea City starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Michel Vorm | Ben Davies, Ashley Williams, Chico, Angel Rangel | Jonjo Shelvey, Leon Britton | Wayne Routledge, Pablo Hernandez, Nathan Dyer | Wilfried Bony

Substitutes from: Gerhard Tremmel, Jordi Amat, Neil Taylor, Jay Fulton, Jonathan de Guzman, Marvin Emnes, David N'gog

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Nemanja Matic, Ramires | André Schürrle, Willian, Mohamed Salah | Demba Ba

Substitutes from: Mark Schwarzer, Ashley Cole, David Luiz, Mikel, Oscar, Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o


After the excitement of Liverpool vs. Manchester City, this one's hopefully just a simple win for Chelsea then.  With Liverpool perhaps grabbing the lead for good, it's even more imperative for Chelsea to collect all three points here and in all the remaining matches as well.

Mourinho opts for big man Demba Ba today, while the Schurrle-Willian-Salah trio gets another go after impressing last weekend.  Ramires returns from suspension to partner Matic in midfield while the defense is as you'd expect.
