Sports Mole previews the match between Swansea City and Chelsea in the Premier League.

Chelsea go into their clash with Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium aware that either Liverpool or Manchester City will drop points in the race for the Premier League title.

The Blues sit two points either side of their rivals, and victory in Wales will see the Stamford Bridge outfit capitalise on the result on Merseyside.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is expected to be without John Terry and Eden Hazard, with Nemanja Matic, Ramires and Mohamed Salah in line for a start against the Swans.

Head coach Garry Monk will be keen for his Swansea team to extend the gap above the relegation zone before the final three games of the season.

Swansea are six points above 18th-placed Fulham, but with the Cottagers hosting Norwich City on Saturday, it could become tight at the bottom.

Midfield duo Jose Canas and Pablo Hernandez could start against Chelsea, with Michu dropping to the substitutes' bench.
