Chelsea strongest lineup to face Swansea City

After a superb 2-0 win over French Champions Paris St Germain in midweek, which enabled Chelsea to advance through to the semi finals of the Champions League, the Blues now turn attention to Premier League assignments as they travel to Wales to take on a hot and cold Swansea side. Chelsea are two points adrift Liverpool in the Premier League table, in second position and must be well aware that anything short of a win will dent their hopes to claim the Premier League title. So what will be Jose Mourinho’s best lineup against the Swansea for the encounter? We here at Soccersouls have the answer for our readers.

Goalkeeper and Defence

Peter Cech

Peter Cech will look to grab yet another clean sheet against Swansea who have been inexplicably sluggish in the current season. The Swans have only scored nine times in their last six Premier League games and even though Wilfried Bony and Michu will look to dent Chelsea’s title aspiration on Sunday, Cech would be well up for the task in front of the Liberty Stadium faithful.

Branislav Ivanovic will play in the right back slot and join attacks up front with his over lapping runs forward with great aplomb. Cesar Azpilicueta’s tremendous season continues as the Spaniard will start in the left wing slot and with his ease and confidence on the ball, Chelsea are more than adept at building from the back. Gary Cahill and John Terry, who were sumptuous in midweek will have to deal with the raw strength of Bony and the clever runs of Michu in the final third.
