The win opens up Chelsea an eleven point lead at the top of the Premier League.
Swansea City: Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson; Cork, Carroll, Fer; Narsingh, Llorente, Sigurdsson. There are 13 games and we want to stay top. The leaders had hoped to add the Spain global, who worked under Conte at Juventus, to their own ranks as a back-up for Diego Costa.
Swansea's last and only league win at Stamford Bridge was in 1925.
"He (Makelele) does not have so much coaching experience, but he has a good feel for players, one-to-one, he has great knowledge of the game having played at such a high level".
Picked out inside the penalty area by Pedro's cut-back, Fabregas nimbly adjusted his stride before clipping his shot past Lukasz Fabianski.
Swansea started to grow frustration against the possession-dominant Chelsea side after 35 minutes of play, as full-backs Kyle Naughton and Martin Olsson both got their names into the book for fouls against Eden Hazard and Victor Moses, respectively.
"He has always had this quality but the formation we are playing is now better exploiting his characteristics".
"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". At the bottom, Hull's game against Burnley is a huge chance for them to gain more ground plus there's the small matter of Leicester's Monday night clash with Liverpool.More news: Deportation priorities will expand to include those convicted of even minor crimes
Punters, therefore, are advised to snap up the juicy 5/4 (2.25) quote for more than three goals to be scored when Chelsea face Swansea City; a selection that would have seen punters profit from four of the last five fixtures between the two teams.
"I think that in this moment, we will give anyone a hard game".
At 1-1, the ball appeared to hit the arm of the hosts' defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
84' - GOAL! Chelsea 3-1 Swansea (Costa).
Chelsea didn't mind and got even more exhilarated from the call, and Pedro soon found the net for Chelsea's second goal of the game!
Chelsea scored a third six minutes from time when Hazard ran to the byline and cut the ball back for Costa to volley in emphatically.
"It's not a true 11 points, the other teams have to play, I like to tell this that they need another 29 points to win the league and if we are able from now at the end to take 29 points for sure we win the title", Conte said.
"When he arrived at Chelsea I learned a lot from him", said Gallas, who was visiting the Welsh side for a French broadcast station.
