Chelsea has made a fantastic start to the Premier League season. They have a 100% record after their first three games, beating the likes of Everton, Burnley and Leicester City so far. Their 100% record is unlikely to be troubled by Swansea City, with the visitors’ firm underdogs to get anything from the game at Stamford Bridge.
The odds for this game suggest that Chelsea should have an easy ride. They are priced at 2/7 to get the result they want, with bookies almost certain of a Chelsea win. The draw is priced at 5/1, highlighting the difficulty of the task facing Swansea. A win for the visiting team is priced at 11/1, making them rank outsiders in this clash.
Swansea will not be expected to emerge with a point in this game. Chelsea are rampant at the moment, having heavily invested in their squad over the close season. They brought in world class players such as Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa, and Felipe Luis. They also recalled Thibaut Courtois from his loan spell at Atletico Madrid, while Didier Drogba was re-signed from Galatasaray. Their manager, Jose Mourinho, always has huge success with his teams during his second season in charge. Chelsea are favorites to win this year’s Premier League.
Despite all of those things, a result for Swansea cannot be ruled out. Aston Villa came to Stamford Bridge and got a result last season, despite being near the relegation zone at the time. In fact, Chelsea’s biggest weakness last season was against sides in the lower half of the table. They had a brilliant record versus their closest rivals, but struggled to get the job done against weaker opposition.
If you fancy playing a bet on an upset result, the draw at 5/1 is a good bet. A Swansea win is very unlikely and would probably be a waste of your money, but a draw is not an impossible result.
