Swansea are unbeaten in their last four matches with Chelsea.
This is only the 25th meeting between the sides in all competitions and only the fourth in the top flight. Chelsea
have won nine times, Swansea six and there have been six draws.
Chelsea have scored more headed goals (15) than any other top-flight team this season.
The Blues have lost just one of their last six Premier League games (W4, D1, L1).
They have lost just one of the 17 league games they have been leading in at half-time this season, winning 12 (only defeat came against West Ham United).
If Frank Lampard scores in this match he will equal Andy Cole’s record of scoring against 38 different teams in the
Premier League. He needs two goals to equal Chelsea’s all-time goalscoring record.
Juan Mata has assisted 12 league goals this season, two more than any other player (Walcott 10).
Fernando Torres hasn’t scored a Premier League goal for Chelsea in 997 minutes.
Their current spell of five league games without a win is their worst barren run in the Premier League.
The Swans are one of four sides not to have scored a penalty in the league this season.
They have used players from eight different nationalities in the league this season, fewer than any other team.
