Swansea City vs Chelsea
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
Chelsea look to have found the way out of the crisis with three straight wins across competitions. The fine form, however, acme a bit too late for Antonio Conte and his men who are still five points shy of Tottenham hotspur in the battle for the top-four finish and the Champions league football next term.
However, with four games left to play, the Blues have the right to hope. They will be massive favourites to keep the fine spell of form going on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Wales to play Swansea City at Liberty Stadium.
The hosts will come into the game off the back of a demolishing 5-0 loss to the newly-crowned Premier League champions Manchester City. They had huge troubles with the efficiency in the final third in recent weeks failing to net more than twice in last six league outings. The Swans are still four points clear above the drop zone, but the current form might suggest potential problems for them down in the relegation scrap.
Chelsea won 8 and lost only 2 of 15 head to head games with Swansea City over the course of history.
Nonetheless, four of seven matches played at Liberty Stadium ended without a winner.
Swansea City took four points from last two games with Chelsea.
Conte’s men will head into the game high on confidence with the 2-0 win over Southampton in the FA Cup semifinal under their belts. A victory here would bring them just two points away of the Spurs at least for a day and there are no doubts Hazard and company will be highly-motivated to grab the spoils against the struggling opposition. Since the host are winless in last six league games, we can hardly back anything else but Chelsea’s win at 1.44 here.
Also, we have to mention the form of Olivier Giroud. The French striker bagged three goals in last three games for the Blues, including last weekend’s opener at Wembley. His form definitely adds on the value of the 2.50 odds offered for Giroud to score anytime past the struggling defensive line of Swansea’s.
Chelsea to win @ 1.44
Olivier Giroud to score anytime @ 2.50
