Chelsea win at Swansea to keep UCL ambitions alive


"Now we have three games to go and have to win for our fans, for our work and then we'll see what happens".

Swansea are just one step away from the relegation zone and a win for them would have pushed them to some level of safety as the season is gradually winding down.

"The situation is not in our hands, but the only way to put a bit of pressure on Tottenham is to get three points in every game".

Eden Hazard showed characteristically quick feet to find space on the edge of the penalty area before teeing up Fabregas, who whipped a first-time effort with his left foot into Lukasz Fabianski's top corner.

The former Premier League champions now face a huge home game against Liverpool next Sunday while Swansea will be anxiously looking over their shoulders following relegation rival Southampton's victory earlier in the day.

Despite not adding to Fabregas' early goal, Chelsea were in control throughout against the Swans.

Intriguingly, Chelsea and Liverpool meet at Stamford Bridge next weekend, when the pressure could really be applied on Jurgen Klopp's side.

"We started the game very well and dominated the game in the first half". Olivier Giroud's header was nearly turned into his own net by Alfie Mawson, only for the ball to come off the top of the bar and out for a corner.

But it was hard to lay a glove on a Chelsea defence in which England defender Gary Cahill was given another pre-World Cup opportunity to impress and that was superbly protected by N'Golo Kante.

Chelsea had another chance with 20 minutes to go.

Andre Ayew curled wide for the hosts late on, but they rarely looked like finding a leveller against opponents who comfortably kept them at arm's length throughout.

Tom Carroll flashed a shot wide and Wayne Routledge fired straight at Courtois in the closing stages as Swansea ultimately fell short of finding a priceless equaliser.
