The pursuit of top four Premier League spots became faster as Cesc Fabregas made a historic goal to deepen the concerns of Swansea city.
Fabregas struck in the fourth night in South Wales in the fourth minute – his 15th position for Chelsea after making his 50th Premier League goal and 35 runs for the former club Arsenal.
Swansea had opportunities to claim some occasions, especially in the second half, but the defeat of 1-0 meant that there are now six games without victory in favor of Carlos Carvalhal.
Midfielder Cesc Fabregas said, “We just have to keep on winning, but they obviously have the advantage because they are on top.”
He had a lot more to say about the team’s currents state. He added, “We have been winning games, not comfortably, and that is the most important thing. Sometimes when you are in a dip of form and you are struggling to get points, to win whatever it takes, to do it is always positive. I think we’ve been doing well that way, because every team we play is fighting for something. You could see that with Swansea and it will be the same when Huddersfield come to Stamford Bridge.”
“We have had to dig in in certain moments and we are ready to do that,” said the midfielder.
The following day, the Liverpool’s spherical draw for the season had opened Chelsea’s door a bit in the day before qualifying for the first season’s Champions League.
The nine-point difference on the kick-off with Chelsea went to six, with Chelsea – the fourth-place Tottenham has two points – his game on hand against Merseyside rivals.
Interestingly, Chelsea and Liverpool meet Stamford Bridge at the end of next week, when the pressure could actually be applied in favor of Jurgen Kloppe.
To damage Swansea’s protective resources, Federico Fernandez and Kyle Bartley had fallen out of loss.
Kyle Naughton became one of the three central defenders, and Connor Roberts came to launch his first English Premier League.
But that unfamiliarity in Swansea defense was exposed immediately because Eden Hazard marked Fabregas in the penalty area and Spaniard twisted a delicious shot behind Lukasz Fabianski.
Chelsea was in full command, and Victor Moses saw an attempt to block its goal by Alfie Mawson before Olivier Giroud failed to score goals.
After the ball infiltrated into the air, Mawson reflected the concern of Swansea by skimming the top of his own crossbar and Giroud won the header.
In the book of referee Jonathan Moss against Martin Olsson and Swansea, Andrew made his first round effort, while Sung-Jung sent him into free-kick Thibaut Courtois’ Midriff.
It was difficult to keep Chelsea defense on gloves, in which another pre-World Cup opportunity was given to impress England defender Gary Cahill and which was preserved by N’Golo Kante.
There was also a threat to the productive Chelsea counter, and Fabianski dropped from his left to deny Wing-back Emerson after such a raid.
Chelsea continued to decline in the last few minutes, but when Tom Carroll made the clearance, Swansea’s hope finally vanished, and Courtois defeated Wayne Routledge.
