Swansea's aerial threat could pay off against water-tight Chelsea defence

Fernando Llorente's ability in the air could catch Chelsea's defence out on Saturday.

Swansea's magnificent resurgence under new boss Paul Clement could stall temporarily on Saturday as the Welsh club visit runaway league leaders Chelsea, unbeaten at home in 11 games. However, in their last league game Chelsea were held to a draw by Burnley. If Swansea can emulate certain aspects of Burnley's performance from that match, they could give Chelsea a tough time.

To earn Burnley a point, Sean Dyche deployed his favoured 4-4-2 to counter Antonio Conte's 3-4-3, used two defensive banks...

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik blasts Leicester City after their loss to Swansea and sorts out the rest of the relegation battle.

Paul Clement is transforming Swansea City. From rock bottom of the Premier League on New Year's Day to 15th on Valentine's Day, Swans are taking flight in a manner that appeared beyond them during Bob Bradley's 85 days in charge.

Since Clement's Jan. 3 appointment, four wins from six matches have not only hauled Swansea from the mire, but pulled others down. Among those to have beaten are champions Leicester and Crystal Palace, both of whom now look up at the Welsh club.

Clement is Swansea's third...

Positives

Goals from two new defenders shows Swansea's recruitment policy is back where it should be. Alfie Mawson and Martin Olsson are quality additions, and the team looks like it is improving again rather than stagnating.

Plus, goals from unexpected quarters make any side that much more dangerous. The clean sheet was a big boost, and the central defensive partnership...

Paul Clement oversees Swansea revival, but Leicester a massive test

Swansea's resurgence under manager of the month Paul Clement has provided an unlikely win over Liverpool and a point-worthy performance during last Sunday's unfortunate 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.

Upsetting the big clubs is one trick, but now Swansea must prove they can still play as well against their relegation rivals. Reigning champions Leicester come to town on Sunday for a six-pointer, which could see Swansea take another significant step towards safety.

In Premier League terms, Swansea...
