It was a great game of football that took place at the Liberty Stadium,this afternoon that had all the ingredients to create a spectacle,with the Blues coming into the game with 100 percent record and top striker Diego Costa in top form.
Antonio Contes men wasted no time showing their intent with Diego Costa getting on the scoresheet in the 17th minute following a defensive scramble in the box,allowing oscar to tee up the ball for th spaniard who slotted the ball into the bottom corner beyond the reach of Fabianski,to put Chelsea one goal up,Hazard also threathned some minutes later with a trade-mark run but Fabianski was in hand to parry the ball away for a corner,Countless opportunities fell to Costa but unluckily he failed to convert them,these were the highlights of an eventful first half,during the remainder,Chelsea enjoyed the higher amount of possesion and dominated the game till the half-time whistle.
Going into the second half,Chelsea hoped to carry on the momentum,with Willian forcing a save from Fabianski,but despite having all of the ball the blues failed to double their lead,and were caught on the counter with Barrow swinging the ball unto the path of Sigurdsson,only for Courtois to foul the Swansea man to give away a penalty,that was cooly sloted home by Sigurdsson.
Courtois who had a quiet first half,picked the ball out of his net again,after Gary Cahill miss-controlled the ball and fouled at the same time by Leroy Fer who scored from the resulting incident.
With things going against Chelsea,they mounted tirades of attacks at the swansea defense,with Costa in the thick of action and almost drew a penalty from Fabianski,that wasn’t awarded,but the Brazilian was not to be denied as he scored the equalizer via a deflected over-head kick but it wasn’t enough for Chelsea to get the win.
Despite the Blues 100 percent record coming to an end,they still remain unbeaten and trail Man City by 2 points and will be looking to gain grounds on the leaders when they take on Liverpool on friday night at the Bridge.
