Can We Beat Chelsea!?

Can We Beat Chelsea!?


Swansea City will feature in an unexpected top of the table clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, as one of the top two sides has to see an end to their 100% start to the Premier League season.

Of course, most, if not all neutrals - opposition fans, pundits, journalists and the bookies will favour a win for Jose Mourinho's title favourites at home, but Swansea City are continuing to prove their doubters wrong, can they do it again at Chelsea this weekend?

One particular fan on our Message Forum is confident that, although highly unlikely, Swansea City can caue another upset after their surprising opening day win at Manchester United.

GThomas on the forum posted:

I know they carved Everton open at their place, scoring 6, but it was one of those games where goals were being scored at both ends within minutes of each other.

They look like one of the strongest in the League but they didn't have it easy against 2 of the newly promoted sides, and it took them until the second half to get through an organised and solid Leicester team.

We'll be just as organised, and have a bit more going for us at the other end.

We'll give them a good game, and although I don't expect to get anything, a point would be fantastic but they may win by the odd goal.

Monk and Clotet have really got us playing with a good balance between defence and attack and will have had 2 weeks preparing time to analyse Chelsea and see how we can limit the amount of goals we concede and score 1 or 2 ourselves.

Can you imagine sitting top next weekend thanks to a win against the title favourites!?

You can dream!


Do you agree? Are you confident of the Swans getting a point or three at Stamford Bridge?

Lets face it lads ANYBODY could have beat United when you played them it wasnt no big deal. But youre doing ok and youve got to have spirit and ambition or whats the point eh. So I hope you do bring your best game. Theres nothing to be proud about beating a team not at their best.

Well we're the only team to beat United so far, and playing at Old Trafford is never easy.

Winning away from home is always difficult in the Premier League, and Man Utd were out to impress their new manager. It was a good performance and one we got hardly any credit for. OK Chelsea is about 5 steps up the ladder for us but all we can ask is a decent performance and to take any chances that come our way. No-one expects us to get anything so we can go there without any expectations.
