FULL TIME: Swansea City 2-2 Chelsea

Absorbing match this and it's been entertaining from the word go. Chelsea looked to have it all in the bag but 2 defensive efforts by The Blues pulled the game back on track and what a game it turned out to be in the end.

Chelsea took the lead through Diego Costa in the 18th minute. the hosts weren't able to find their feet in the game whatsoever in the first half and this forced Guidolin to make a tactical substitution just before half time.

The change worked especially in the 2nd half when a counter attack got Barrow free and he crossed the ball into the Chelsea box where there was absolutely no one! But a misjudgement by Courtois led to Sigurdsson getting ahead of the keeper for the ball and it resulted in a foul and a penalty to Swansea. The Iceland international itself stepped up and scored to level things up. Minutes later Gary Cahill made a fumble with the ball despite having a lot of time and space to pass it or even clear the ball away. Leroy Fer took advantage of this and slotted home Swansea's 2nd goal through the legs of Courtois. 

Chelsea though didn't give up and a frustrated Conte saw his team finally pull level thanks to a stunning goal by Diego Costa. Both teams had a great chance to win the match right towards the end but never managed to find the net.
