Will Antonio Conte be applauding his Chelsea side after their match with Swansea?

Relegation threatened Swansea host a Chelsea team still fighting for a Champions League spot. Opta presents the vital statistics.

"Olivier Giroud has scored twice and assisted twice in four away Premier League starts at Liberty Stadium."

Swansea have won one of their 13 Premier League games against Chelsea (D4 L8), a 1-0 victory in April 2016. A Chelsea win is 8/151.55.

The Blues have won two of their seven trips to Liberty Stadium in all competitions (D4 L1), failing to win either of their last two (D1 L1). A draw is 7/24.4.

The Swans have beaten Arsenal and Liverpool already this season, and could become the first non 'big six' side to win three games against those clubs in 2017-18. Swansea are 13/27.6 to win.

After a run of three consecutive defeats on the road, Chelsea have now won their last two Premier League away games, last winning three in a row back in September (a run of five). The draw half-time/Chelsea full-time double result is 7/24.5.

Having found the net in eight of their first nine Premier League games under Carlos Carvalhal, the Swans have failed to score in three of their last five. Chelsea are 11/82.38 to win to nil.

Antonio Conte has won 49 of his 72 Premier League games - victory here will see him become the third quickest manager to reach 50 victories in the competition, after Jose Mourinho (63 games) and Pep Guardiola (69). Chelsea are 3/14.0 to win both halves.
