Swansea City have won four of their six Premier League matches since Paul Clement replaced Bob Bradley on January 2 and currently lie 15th in the table, four points clear of the relegation zone. However, Clement, who spent two spells on the coaching staff at Stamford Bridge, acknowledges that his side faces a ‘big task’ on his return to his former club.
The Blues’ have been beaten just once at home in the Premier League this season, scoring 33 goals and conceding just seven. Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Pedro have contributed 31 goals and 13 assists between them, home and away, it’s not hard to envisage a torrid afternoon for the visiting defence.
Swans’ chairman Huw Jenkins recently revealed that the club rejected “substantial offers” for the influential trio Gylfi Sigurdsson, Fernando Llorente and Federico Fernandez in the January transfer window but, while the Jacks should continue to improve under Clement, Chelsea at Stamford Bridge may be a step too far at this stage. Let’s try a routine 2-0 home win at 6/1 with bet365, William Hill or BetVictor.
