Swansea v Chelsea Odds: Blues firm favourites in the Liberty Stadium betting

Click here for an in-depth betting preview of the Swansea v Chelsea match on Wednesday 23rd January 2013.

Chelsea head to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea on Saturday afternoon as they look to maintain their tilt at the Premier League title. The Blues have enjoyed a fine start to the season but suffered a setback when they lost 3-2 to Manchester United at home last Sunday, while Swansea were unfortunate to lose 1-0 at Man City last Saturday.

Both sides have since bounced back to form in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup as a rotated, but strong, Chelsea side beat Man United 5-4 on Wednesday, while Swansea earned an impressive 3-1 win at Liverpool as they got one over on their former boss Brendan Rodgers. The bookies fancy the Welsh side face a tough task against Chelsea though as Swansea are 4/1 and the draw is 13/5 with Bet 365, who make Chelsea the 8/11 odds on favourites.

Chelsea were left reeling by their controversial defeat to United last weekend but they exacted swift revenge in the Capital One Cup in mid-week. Juan Mata will look to continue his fine recent form after scoring five and setting up four goals in his last five league appearances, with B365 going a best price 8/1 for the Spaniard to score first.

Mata has been instrumental in Chelsea's early rise to the upper reaches of the Premier League and he has been a key figure in their new found goalscoring strength. Chelsea's last eight matches in all competitions have involved 41 goals, with all eight going over 2.5, and it could be worth backing the Chelsea win and over 2.5 goals at 6/4 in the 'match x goals' market with B365 this weekend.

Roberto Di Matteo's side will have to do without the injured Frank Lampard and suspended John Terry and it is Terry's absence that makes Chelsea vulnerable at the back. Gary Cahill, who is a tempting 8/1 to score anytime after scoring five goals already this season, has been an able deputy at centre back and he offers a real threat from set pieces but David Luiz flatters to deceive defensively.

Swansea, who are 11th in the league, will look to take full advantage of any weakness in the Chelsea defence and Michu can continue the form that has seen him score seven goals this season. Michu is 9/1 to score the first goal of this Swansea v Chelsea game but he could be worth a look to score Swansea's first goal at 5/1 as this is a game that could involve a few goals.

Michael Laudrup's team's last six games at home have involved at least three goals and they have only lost one of their last eight league games at the Liberty Stadium. However, no clean sheet in their last 10 tells its own story and they could tire after their exertions against Man City and Liverpool during the last week, with Chelsea bidding to enhance their record of having won four and lost only one of their last eight away league games.
