English Premier League

Starting XI: Swansea v Chelsea

Chelsea will be looking to cement their spot at the top of the English Premier League when they travel to Swansea on Saturday afternoon.
 
 
The League leaders come into this clash on the back of a hard-fought 2-0 win over Newcastle United, thanks to goals from Willian and Diego Costa.
 
Goalkeeper Petr Cech is expected to keep his place in the team, as Thibaut Courtois is yet to recover from a broken finger, while  Cesar Azpilicueta will miss the clash with a groin injury.
 
Swansea, meanwhile, begin life without striker Wilfried Bony, following his move to Manchester City.
 
French striker Bafetimbi Gomis is expected to lead the Swans attack against the Blues, Jonjo Shelvey misses out through suspension, while fellow midfielder Ki Sung-yueng is away on international duty.
 
Gary Monk's side come into this clash winless in their last three Premier League encounters, which has seen them drop to ninth in the league standings.
 
The Blues have won five and lost none of the seven Premier League meetings with Swansea City.
 
A hat-trick from Diego Costa and a solitary strike from Loic Remy saw Mourinho's men come from a goal behind to beat Swansea  4-2 in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season.
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Swansea City: Fabianski, Tiendalli, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor, Carroll, Sigurdsson, Dyer, Oliveira, Routledge, Gomis
 
Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Filipe Luis; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa
