On Wednesday night Chelsea will host Swansea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.
Chelsea come into the game third in the league following Saturday’s 1-1 draw away at Liverpool.
Swansea, meanwhile, are second bottom of the division and they are very much in the relegation mix-up.
Last weekend Swansea drew 0-0 at home against Bournemouth. That was actually a relatively good result for Paul Clement’s side as it arrested a five game losing run at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea lose their best player

🗣 The boss on team news:
"After Saturday, everyone is okay. We can’t play @tammyabraham against his parent club. Kyle Bartley is not far off training and hopefully he will be back in the next couple of weeks." pic.twitter.com/avGgpgnplE

Swansea already know that they’ll be without Tammy Abraham for the match at Chelsea.
That’s because Abraham is banned from playing in the mach as per the terms of his season-loan deal at Swansea.
Wilfried Bony will lead the Swansea line against Chelsea.
Swansea are also likely to be without Frederico Fernandez against Chelsea. He missed Saturday’s game against Bournemouth following the death of his father, and the defender could be absent once again.
Kyle Bartley is also absent for the Swansea due to an injury.
Chelsea’s three absentees
As for Chelsea, Antonio Conte could welcome Victor Moses back into the fold.
Moses was sprinting on the Anfield pitch last Saturday after the 1-1 draw with Liverpool.
Antonio Conte, however, will be without three players on Wednesday. Michy Batshuayi, Kenedy and Charly Musonda are all likely to miss out with injuries.
