Sports Mole previews Chelsea's upcoming Premier League visit to Swansea City.

League leaders Chelsea visit Swansea City on Saturday looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the domestic season away from Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are just one point clear at the top of the Premier League table following last weekend's controversial 3-2 defeat to title rivals Manchester United.

Roberto Di Matteo's men gained revenge over United on Wednesday night with a dramatic 5-4 extra-time win in the League Cup.

David Luiz and Gary Cahill, who both played in that match, are likely to retain their places in the centre of defence, as John Terry continues to serve his four-match suspension.

Frank Lampard remains on the sidelines, but Branislav Ivanovic, Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres should all return to the starting XI for the visitors.

Meanwhile, buoyed by their 3-1 League Cup success at Liverpool, Swansea will be looking to move into the top half of the table with three points.

Goalkeeper Michel Vorm, who has a torn groin muscle, is the only major absentee for the Welsh side.

Recent form:

Swansea: WLDWLW

Chelsea: WWWLLD

Possible starting lineups:

Swansea: Tremmel, Tiendalli, Williams, Chico, Richards, Britton, De Guzman, Ki, Dyer, Hernandez, Michu

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Bertrand, Luiz, Cahill, Mikel, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Torres

Sports Mole says: 1-3
