The Blues need to take maximum points from this crunch clash to keep up the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table and Jose Mourinho's men are available at 4/6 (1.67) with bet365 to see off the Swans.
Garry Monk's side are also in need of points, having won only one of their last eight Premier League matches and now find themselves just six points clear of the relegation zone.
The Swans can be backed at a chunky 4/1 (5.0) with bet365 to ease their worries with victory here while the same firm go 11/4 (3.75) that Sunday's clash ends in stalemate.
Chelsea edged to a narrow 1-0 victory over the Swans when these two sides met in west London on Boxing Day and, with Mourinho still dissatisfied with his striking options, many will expect another low-scoring encounter here.
Should the goals fail to flow, the 4/5 (1.80) quote offered up by bet365 for fewer than three goals to be scored would appear to represent decent value for punters.
However, it should be noted that, despite Swansea's indifferent form, Monk's men have found the net in no fewer than 10 of their last 12 Premier League matches while the Blues have scored 16 goals in their last six league matches – including six against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in March.
With that in mind, the 5/6 (1.83) quote from bet365 for both teams to find the net on Sunday looks to be a solid selection while the even money (2.0) quote from the same firm for three or more goals to be scored looks to represent some value.
Swansea have managed just one clean sheet in their last eight matches and those seeking to squeeze further value from this game may be tempted by the juicy 7/4 (2.75) quote from bet365 for Chelsea to score in both halves here.
Punters, though, are instead advised to snap up the generous even money (2.0) quote from bet365 for three or more goals to be scored at Liberty Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
