Chelsea slip from EPL top spot
Chelsea missed their chance to return to the top of the Premier League as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.
Having struggled to create many chances against a resolute Swans defence in the opening hour of the game it was a simple corner routine that brought the opening goal of the game.
Gary Cahill rose to meet Eden Hazard’s right-wing corner and Moses glanced the ball into the net from inside the six yard box. However with three minutes to play the home side levelled things up with a fantastic Pablo Hernandez strike from outside the penalty area, beating Petr Cech’s outstretched left hand.
With Chelsea captain John Terry serving the final game of his four game ban and David Luiz not in the match day squad Cesar Azpilicueta made his first Premier League start for the Blues at right-back with Branislav Ivanovic moving to the centre of defence alongside Gary Cahill. Frank Lampard and Juan Mata also missed out for the visitors, who gave Oriel Romeu a rare start in place of Ramires.
