Chelsea will host Swansea City at Stamford Bridge this Thursday. As one of the most anticipated matches during Boxing Day, the team coached by Jose Mourinho will look to tie, or even surpass Liverpool and Arsenal for the league’s first place. The Blues will have all the ingredients in their favor to obtain the 3 points, considering they play at home, and that they face a team that is located lower in the standings. On the other hand, with 20 points, Swansea City will have a difficult match where they must play without five injured players. Below, we have provided TV Info, team forms, and the confirmed lineups for both sides.
