Swansea City 0-1 Chelsea: Rain Dogs

Swansea City 0-1 Chelsea: Rain Dogs

With a huge game against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge next Sunday, Conte says his team are ready to put even more pressure on the teams above them. Jurgen Klopp's third-place side still requires a maximum of four points from its last two matches, including a trip to fifth-place Chelsea, to be sure of Champions League qualification.

Liverpool's 0-0 draw with Stoke earlier in the day gave a lift to Chelsea's hopes of still making the top four with three games remaining after mounting a dismal defence of its Premier League title. It won't be easy.

Despite seeing much of the ball in the opening two minutes, Swansea got off to the worst possible start, as the brilliance of Eden Hazard quickly shone through, when the Belgium slipped through a delightful ball to Cesc Fabregas, who finished off the move in style, curling the ball past Lukas Fabianski for his 50th strike in England's top flight.

"We have been winning games, not comfortably but we have been winning which is the most important thing and I think sometimes when you are in a dip of form, you're struggling to get points, to win whatever way or whatever it takes to do it is always positive and I think we've been doing well".

Huddersfield are probably safe, given the fact that both Swansea and Southampton would have to make up two- and three-point gaps in order to leapfrog them and see the Terriers to fall to 18th, but a point (or all three) at home against Everton would have put to bed any lingering fears.

Antonio Conte's men will need to win their remaining three games and hope their rivals stumble on the way to secure a Champions League ticket for next season.

The Swans nearly found a way back in to the game seven minutes in to the second half.

But Swansea improved after the break and produced several moments of danger, although in the end they suffered a first home league defeat since January 2.

"What we must do is keep the momentum of the performance in the last games, because if we play like that we will achieve the necessary points to stay in the competition", he said.
