BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE AT ODDS 1.80Final result: 0 - 0
Profit: 0.00 - 5 = -5
Swansea has no 5 match unbeaten run in PL before the match. Their average goal line has been 2.6 per match where both of the teams has scored lately. However against reading both of the teams stayed to round zero numbers but other matches has been very offensive.
Chelsea suffered a big surprise defeat against QPR week ago. They had serious problems with their attacking play, 17 shot attemps and only 3 on target. QPR had in the other hand 6 attmeps and 4 on target.
I expect more than 2.5 goals to come here and i predict both of the teams is going to score here. Last time d they played against each other, the scoreline was 1-1 on Swansea's homefield. i believe homeside could take this but both of the teams are gonna score.
Chelsea has many missings in squad: Cech, Terry, Obi Mikel, Moses, Benayoun and Romeu will be out.
Swansea has a bit better situation when only Taylor is out of this match.

When considering that their next two matches is against Brentford and Reading they can field the strongest team. Last time they did that it backfired - they played United in the beginning of the League Cup with a very strong lineups but was forced to play extra time, and next game they were denied a win against Swansea, drew against Liverpool, lost to West Bromwich and Juventus, drew against City and Fulham, and lost to West Ham, ultimately leading to Di Matteo's sacking.
This time they can afford to field the strong team, but last time they did that a spiral of bad results came afterwards, and the Chelsea squad is very limited at the moment. They should play their strongest team, but I'm just saying, that it can go wrong :)
Chelsea should win this match! For them, nothing is lost!
I agree Will. Benitez has always had a fascination with cup competitions rather than the league. He declared it himself last week that he sees Chelsea out of the running for the title. He will field his best men for this one. Terry should therefore be in defence and Ba, rested for most of the match against Arsenal, will be replacing a still confused Torres.
Needs to be updated a bit. I think Cech and Terry is back, and Chico Flores should be ready.
Chelsea drew always drew Soton' and played a tough match against Arsenal Sunday, and Swansea have one more day of resting. Leon Britton only came in as a sub so he should have fresh legs for tomorrow's match.
I don't know if Benitez is going to rotate the lineup. Maybe Terry partnering with Cahill pushing Ivanovic out on the right back, and Demba Ba for Torres. I wouldn't be surprised if Benitez choose to replace either Hazard or Oscar with Marin. The Chelsea squad is looking a bit thin with Romeu, Luiz and Benayoun out with injuries, Mikel and Moses at the African Cup of Nations, and I don't really see the likes of Ferreira and Malouda getting any minutes against the Swans. But, I believe that Benitez will field the strongest formation as Brentford waits in the FA Cup on Sunday and Reading next Wednesday.
i prefer Swansea +1.5
