5 reasons Eden Hazard will chose Real Madrid over Chelsea

The matchday programme for the Premier League clash against Swansea is dedicated to Lampard.

Two minutes into first half injury time, Gylfi Sigurdsson delivered a pinpoint free kick into the box for Llorente, who broke away from his marker before steering his header into the back of the net.

"Any game we don't win we are disappointed by".

The pair have only one league win in their last 16 league matches combinded so the significance of this fixture can not be over looked.

Cesc Fabregas, restored to the team in place of Nemanja Matic, was making his 300th Premier League appearance and the former Arsenal star marked the milestone in the 19th minute with his 46th goal in the competition.

Chelsea began the second half on fire with Lukasz Fabianski needing to be at his acrobatic best to deny Eden Hazard before Fabregas hit the crossbar.

Swansea's defensive players also got a lot of stick from him soon after, as Pedro completed a superb solo run from wide on the left all the way into the area, where his shot was eventually blocked for a corner.

"He's a great player in the same way as Willian or Hazard or Costa".

"They are in strong position but they will not think the title race is over just yet, and the teams behind them will not be thinking that, but they deserve to be where they are".

"To watch Champions League and Europa League on television is not good for me or the players".

Antonio Conte's side are now on a run of five games unbeaten, and had previously gone thirteen unbeaten prior to their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on 4 January.

Clement said: "We did have a very good claim for a penalty, the score's 1-1 at the time, I thought at the time that Azpilicueta had handled it, having looked at the video evidence it's handball".

But within their first effort on goal, Swansea equalise, two minutes into added time.

Costa's season-long renaissance continued with his team-best 16th goal.

Makelele would have admired how Kante broke up the visitors' play and showed again why he was so integral to Claudio Ranieri in Leicester's title win last season.

But it was the home side who benefited from the changes and Costa slammed home from close range with seven minutes left, the third goal to effectively seal the three points.

Speaking on the matter, Conte said: "My reaction is very sad because this is our job and for sure I am disappointed for him".

Moses put in his usual sparkling shift at right wing-back for Chelsea and was replaced by Kurt Zouma with five minutes remaining in the game.
