Sports Mole previews Sunday's Premier League meeting between Chelsea and Swansea City.

Chelsea will be looking to keep up their pursuit of Champions League qualification when they face Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues, who are unbeaten in their last three matches, could have dropped out of the topfour by the time they play on Sunday afternoon if other results go against them. Rafael Benitez's side currently hold a one-point lead over fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Swansea's 0-0 draw with Southampton last week moved the club closer to securing Premier League status for next season. They will be hoping to cement their place in the top half of the table when they travel to West London.

However, the Swans have won just one of their last six matches since clinching the Capital One Cup in February.

Demba Ba is likely to return up front for the hosts after being cup-tied for Thursday evening's 2-1 victory over Basel in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.

John Obi Mikel and Juan Mata are also in line to start.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has no injury concerns ahead of the game so he is likely to name the same starting XI which drew with Southampton.
