Chelsea retain the slimmest hopes of playing in the Champions League next season as they travel to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

Back-to-back league wins have seen the Blues chop the gap to fourth from ten points to five, after Tottenham failed to win either of their last two games. 

They face a Swansea side equally desperate for the win, with just four points separating them from relegation. 

What the managers are saying 

Carlos Carvalhal: “It is David against Goliath again, we are up against a good team.

“But at the Liberty we have good support from the fans and our players grow there, we play better at home.

“They have great players, all of them will go to the World Cup after the season, and a very good manager.

“But we are in a period where we want to make our presence felt.”

Antonio Conte: “As you know very well it won’t be easy (to finish fourth), but at the same time we must try. 

“The only way to put a bit of pressure on Tottenham is to try to get three points tomorrow. Otherwise it will be very difficult to put pressure on Tottenham.

“I think the players and I, we are trying to do our best. Our best is to try to win every game.

“Last season we won the Premier League, this season in the league we are struggling, we are struggling a lot.”

Predicted XIs

Swansea: Fabianski, Naughton, Van der Hoorn, Mawson, Olsson, Ki, Carroll, King, Clucas, J Ayew, A Ayew

Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger, Moses, Fabregas, Kante, Emerson, Willian, Morata, Hazard
