Chelsea to beat Swansea City to nil in Premier League on Saturday

Saturday 28th April, 2018 - 5:30pm - Swansea City v Chelsea (Liberty Stadium)

Swansea have been dicing with Premier League relegation throughout the season, and look set to make their fans suffer for a little while longer. The boost brought by coach Carlos Caravahal’s arrival has dissipated over time and the Swans are now five games without a win, leaving them just four points above the relegation zone. Although very few expected them to beat current behemoths Manchester City last weekend, a 5-0 drubbing at the Etihad for the Swans will have done nothing for their confidence. Unfortunately for them, they follow up by welcoming last season’s champions Chelsea, who are looking to gain ground on fourth-place Tottenham.

  • Swansea have only 1 of 15 meetings with Chelsea
  • Chelsea have kept eight Premier League clean sheets this season

Tips Chelsea to win to nil    Best Bet @ 11 / 8  

Chelsea had a comfortable passage through to the FA Cup Final last weekend with a routine win over a demoralised Southampton side and will be happy to play another relegation battler this Saturday. Olivier Giroud is going some way to demonstrate a consistency that had been severely lacking from the Chelsea forward-line. The Frenchman has three goals in the last three games, including an excellent solo effort around the lacklustre Southampton defence. His quality should provide him with a starting berth once again and he is 9/2 (Betfair) to be first scorer, the same price as Alvaro Morata depending on whether Conte elects to select them both.
Match Odds:

Swansea have only ever won once in their fifteen meetings with the Blues and it looks highly unlikely that this record will be improved at home in the late kick-off on Saturday. The loss of Tammy Abraham who can’t play against his parent club means that those expecting a shock Swansea lead should select Jordan Ayew at 12/1 with bet365 as first goalscorer. Swansea however are also the joint lowest-scoring team in the Premier League, alongside Huddersfield. Chelsea to win to nil is placed at 11/8 will BoyleSports.

Thibaut Courtois’ absence in the FA Cup has been a constant throughout the competition but should be expected to be recalled for this league fixture. Chelsea haven’t kept a clean sheet in the Premier League in eight games. If they break this trend, they are 5/6 (bet365). For them to not, both teams to score with a win for the Blues is best 11/4 (Betfred).

Swansea and Chelsea to both score in the second half is at 3s with Betfair, Paddy Power, and Coral, if one imagines Swansea to be in a situation to grab a consolation goal. Six of their last eight goals have come in the second 45. Twice in the past five meetings have resulted in a 2-2 draw. If this resulted to be repeated is fancied at 20/1 (bet365).
