Chelsea wins 1-0 over Swansea in Premier League

Johannesburg, Dec 27: Chelsea is still within two points of top spot in the Premier League following their 1-0 victory over Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

Chelsea’s performance in grinding out a scoreless draw at Arsenal three days previously was described as a return to an approach that had been familiar during manager Jose Mourinho’s first spell in charge.

According to Sport24, although Eden Hazard’s first-half goal was the difference between the two teams, Chelsea’s failure to build on the Belgium international’s ninth goal of the season meant it continued the run of recent underwhelming displays by the Blues.

The report mentioned that Swansea arrived at Stamford Bridge having won just one of their last seven games and rarely looked like ending that frustrating run. (ANI)
