Swansea have gained 10 points from their last 5 matches. Beating struggling teams like Villa and Norwich, but also winning at The Emirates. The other 2 games they lost to Bournemouth and have just drawn with Stoke.

I'm quite confident we can come away with 3 points, but it wouldn't surprise me if they held us to a draw.

No Costa for this one. Would like to see Traore start, but I'd also like to see Pato as well. Hopefully Guus will play some Youth players again, too.

It's a tricky fixture. They've won 3 of their last 5 including that one at the Emirates, but the other 2 were Villa and Norwich. Dropping points at Bournemouth wasn't great but that point at Stoke was hard fought.

 

Honestly they're probably not far off where we are as a team so it's a toughie.

 

It's a step-up for someone like Miazga too, especially if Gomis plays because I've always liked him. I'd really like to see us keep going with the youngsters but I suspect Guus will make a few changes including bringing Willian back into the team at the expense of Kenedy. I'd also be inclined to drop Rahman if one of Cahill and JT are back.

Pato did well but Traore was great before he was dropped for Costa and has done nothing to see him overtaken by the loan signing.

I really have a sense of indifference ahead of this fixture that I haven't felt about a Chelsea game in a long time.

By the way, if you type 'define indifference' into Google the example comes up as 'the indifference of Chelsea's midfield.'

What happens with Traore, injured? I wasn't convinced at all by Pato's debut, but Remy was awful, even if he's somehow fit he shouldn't get anywhere near the starting team. Swanesa is out of the relegation zone, not that much to play for either.

I think he was away playing in the international break (Ghana, if memory serves me) and didn't return until later then most playing in Europe. Because of this he was rested.

That's what I heard anyway

I want to see Salter play a full game, not just 10 minutes, now that we've seen Miazga, Pato to replace Traore in the second half, would like to see Aina eventually.

That's hilarious, I thought you were joking but it actually does!

Yeah. It's Atsu (and Baba) that's Ghanain.

Sorry, I meant I thought he was away playing against Ghana, not that he's Ghanain.

Feeling positive about this match. Hopefully we'll get the new manager boost even though he's not started yet
