Conte: Llorente Is The Man To Contain At Swansea

Posted February 25, 2017

Chelsea have been ruthless in delivering victories this season and it's the reason they are 8 points clear at the summit of the Premier League.

Swansea's form may have improved since the appointment of Clement who has notably brought in formidable Chelsea old boy Claude Makelele as his assistant, but they have been unable to keep a clean sheet on the road and the managerial duo will be certain to have focused on addressing this issue on the training ground.

Chelsea couldn't find a winning goal against Burnley last time out in the league, but after a hard-earned away win in the FA Cup against Wolves they'll feel confident of beating Swansea at Stamford Bridge, where they've won nine straight in the league. "To win at that stadium is very hard - it's one of the most hard places to win in the Premier League", Makelele added.

I am very sad because it is our job and I am disappointed for him, he is a friend, a really good man, a really good manager and he won the title only months ago.

'I think it's not right to talk about the past, and to talk about the present. Conte has no injury concerns.

"I am in touch with some people at the club and it will be nice to see them". Also to imagine the players to decide your destiny is not good.

Ricketson, special agent for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, said of the near cold case in a press conference Thursday. Grinstead, an Irwin County High School teacher, left the Sweet Potato Festival and headed to a cookout with friends.

"Eddie is a victor and he is transferring that mentality on to the team", Conte said ahead of facing Chelsea's own Welsh opponents.

The Spanish forward helped himself to a brace when he last played Swansea earlier on this season, as his double which included an acrobatic stunner earned a dramatic 2-2 draw.

Chelsea will likely revert to type and rely on the pace of Eden Hazard and Pedro - who has picked up 3 goals and 1 assist in his last five outings - to hit the Swans on the counter, while Diego Costa will do what he does best - bully the Swansea defence.

Swansea have taken 12 points from a possible 18 in 2017 so far (W4 D0 L2), one more than Chelsea have (11).

Swansea are up to 15th in the Premier League table after winning four of their last six games, three of which came after Paul Clement's arrival at the Liberty Stadium. At the same stage this season, the Blues are 36 points ahead of the Swans in the league.
