Swansea City will look to cause an upset when Antonio Conte led Chelsea come calling for 3 points at the Liberty Stadium. Francesco Guidolin will be aware of the enormity of the task on hand as the Blues are coming off a resounding 3-0 win over Burnley. They are on a 3 match winning streak and are considered absolute favourites by many to make it 4 in a row. Swansea, on the other hand, got off to a positive start when they nicked 3 points off Burnley in their opening game of the season. But they have stumbled thereon in and have lost two matches on the trot since then. Especially the match against Hull City was expected to be a straightforward affair for the Swans, but they ended up on the wrong end of a 0-2 scoreline.
Having invested a lot in the attacking department Guidolin has to come up fast with a viable set-up where he is able to accommodate all his signings. Though the clash between the two teams seems to be heavily tilted towards Chelsea on paper, Swansea can take heart from the fact that they were the victors in the corresponding fixture last season. But things will be a lot harder on Sunday as Chelsea are a revitalized and more dangerous unit under Antonio Conte and they will be looking to avoid any repeat of the aberration of last season.
HERE IS THE PREDICTED SWANSEA CITY LINE-UP VS CHELSEA (4-2-3-1)
Fabianski will take up his usual spot between the sticks and will be expected to make a whole lot of saves if they are to give themselves a chance in the match. Kyle Naughton is expected to keep his place at right-back, though new signing Alfie Mawson could push for a starting spot in place of either Federico Fernandez or Jordi Amat for a centre back role. Neil Taylor tuned up for Wales and is in line to start at left-back.
Jack Cork and Leroy Fer look likely to continue at the base of midfield in the 4-2-3-1 formation, although Ki Sung-Yeung and Leon Britton offer alternative options. Sigurdsson will look to put in some consistent performances with all the attacking options at the disposal of the boss and will hope to cement his No.10 role.
Moudou Barrow will likely continue on the right-hand side with Wayne Routledge on the opposite flank. Jefferson Montero might see some action from the bench later on. With Borja Baston likely to be fit for the subs only, Fernando Llorente will lead the line once again.
