Chelsea vs. Swansea: Live Blog, Fernando Torres Red Carded!

Allan JiangTransfers CorrespondentSeptember 24, 2011

Kickoff at 15:00 UK/10:00 ET

Swansea travel to Stamford Bridge with history against them, as they haven't won away at Chelsea since 1925. 

Swansea almost claimed a point against Arsenal, and for an hour held Manchester City at bay.

Meanwhile Chelsea's campaign has so far been static and equals their worst start after five games since 2007. 

Former Chelsea player Scott Sinclair returns and will be one to watch out for.  

An intriguing subplot to the game will be of the two José Mourinho mentees in André Villas-Boas and Brendan Rodgers; both of whom worked with each other at Chelsea. 

Predicted Starting 11

Chelsea: Petr Čech, José Bosingwa, David Luiz, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Raul Meireles, Ramires, Frank Lampard, Nicolas Anelka, Fernando Torres, Juan Mata. 

Swansea: Michel Vorm, Àngel Rangel, Ashley Williams, Garry Monk, Neil Taylor, Leon Britton, Joe Allen, Mark Gower, Scott Sinclair, Danny Graham, Nathan Dyer. 

Team News

Chelsea: Daniel Sturridge is out with a knee injury. Alex is suspended. 

Swansea: Neil Taylor comes into the game with an injury cloud but has declared himself fit.
