Chelsea sink Swansea to surge 11 points clear

Chelsea sink Swansea to surge 11 points clear

It has been improbable that Leicester would retain their Premier League title for a number of months now but it will be mathematically impossible if Chelsea pick up at least a point this weekend.

Chelsea continued to enjoy the better of the play but Conte saw his side concede on the stroke of half-time as Llorente provided a reminder of what they could have bought in January.

Bournemouth are another side being sucked into the relegation battle after a 2-1 defeat at West Bromwich Albion despite taking a fourth-minute lead through Josh King's penalty.

And any hope of a Swansea recovery disappeared when Hazard worked his way to the byline before pulling back for Costa to add the 84th minute third.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored four Premier League goals against Chelsea, more than he has against any other side (two for Swansea, two for Tottenham). "But they always evolve and invest and, when you get good managers and good players, it is a good mix". I'm lucky to have a lot of players who, in the past, won a lot of trophies. We must pay great attention tomorrow.

If the hosts thought to have faced any unreasonable or controversial refereeing with the late first-half equalizer, Swansea surely felt the same after Sigurdsson went flying past stumbling Moses on the left trying to chip his way past Azpilicueta right after, but the ball was stopped by the defender's arm.

President Trump Forces a Reckoning Among Conservatives
Fast forward to last week, and his approval has grown sizably, according to the newest Morning Consult/POLITICO survey . Schlapp told NBC News that Trump managed to marry "conservative instincts" to a populist tone.

Referee Neil Swarbrick dismissed the appeals and Clement did not approach him about the decision afterwards. The Londoners looked comfortable in their recent weeks and will pick from a strong squad to play Swansea.

"Pedro is now showing the quality that he has but it is not like we are only now finding out Pedro's quality", said Conte. His Spanish colleague, Pedro, 28, is also playing really well at the moment and his pace could really trouble the visitors if they cannot close him down quickly.

Antonio Conte's side were not firing on all cylinders against a resolute Swansea side managed by their former assistant manager Paul Clement but second-half goals by Pedro and Diego Costa made sure of a 3-1 victory.

In his 300th English Premier League appearance - split between his time at Arsenal and Chelsea - Fabregas volleyed a Pedro pass to score his second EPL goal of the season.

Eden Hazard of Chelsea in action during The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea at Molineux on February 18, 2017 in Wolverhampton, England. (Oddly, City were also the league's top scorers that season).

This one will surely be an entirely different game with Chelsea having the best home record, winning 11 of their 12 home fixtures this season.
