SKY REMAINS BLUE REVIEW: CHELSEA NO WAN HEAR ANYTHING SWANSEA ..COLLECT FULL 3 POINTS
It was another day in the office and for Chelsea manager Antonio Conte,nothing less than getting the job done was of paramount interest as he looked to consolidate at the top of the EPL table.So dotting the “i” and crossing the “t” was done at cohbams training ground for perfection on the field of play.After a very bitter draw at Burnley a fortnight ago,there was a renewed vigour to head back to winning ways and Swansea city were tamford bridge to spoil the party. The lads had to dig deep to grind out the victory against a manager (Paul Clement)who had spent years in Chelsea as assistant coach and also who worked with the youth team..He knows Chelsea in and out,team set up,formations and so forth and how he has fared as Swansea city coach have been commended by all and sundry(beating Liverpool was the high point). So I knew it was not going to be a walk in the park for Chelsea.Conte decided to start Cesc Fabregas in midfield in place of Matic as the spanaird made his 300th EPL outing and what a way to express it as he got the first goal in the 17th minute for chelsea after a low cross for Pedro..The game was very tense as the homeboys wanted maximum points off Swansea who they’ve not won against in last three meetings..Chelsea had chance to double the lead through same Fabregas and also Pedro but Swansea goalie Lucas Fabianski had great saves to deny them and when Chelsea were getting relaxed to go into the break..Fernando Illorente made it 1-1 with a header off a free-kick..Certainly Conte will be furious going into the break 1-1 when Chelsea had dominated almost the whole half.
Second half got under way with same spirit as the first..Chelsea tried to go for the kill..to secure the game as ILLoriente,Fer and sigurdson also on hand to frustrate Chelsea’s effort..Until the 77th minute when Pedro collected a pass from fellow compatriot Fabregas and with a fanastic left footed Curler made it 2-1 for Chelsea..you could feel the excitement as Conte enjoyed the moment with his usual running and screaming at the touchline..At this point Swansea were trying to get an equaliser..but it was just to little to late as Diego Costa who had been very active in the game made it 3-1 in the 84th minute off a Hazard mesmerizing run down the left..Tactically Matic replaced Pedro to add steel to the midfield as Victor Moses made way for Willian..at the end 3-1..
abeg i keep my koboko to meself jare, Alonso the regular customer played better..
Ngolo Kante na baba 9/10..all the boys try…11 points clear now..Conte welldone sir..
we remain blues for life!!
