Rarely called into action by Chelsea's poor finishing, with his defenders doing most of the work for him on the day.
Played the ball out of the back for his side, the Englishman was comfortable despite Torres' presence in what was a classy showing.
Combined well with Dyer to torment Cole down the channel but didn't offer anything special on the evening.
Let Sturridge come inside on his obviously better foot far too often, but usually ameliorated his mistakes with little fuss. Was unlucky to concede the own goal at the death.
Very composed and confident throughout, he completely dominated Torres for the entire match and was willing to do whatever was asked of him on the day.
Worked hard and hustled throughout in an endearing breathless midfield display for the Welsh side.
Failed to get involved much, particularly in the first half. Held the ball up and drew a couple fouls in the second term before being substituted.
Ruffled Cole's feathers whenever he attacked, the young Englishman showed why he is so highly thought with another impressive offensive display.
Hit a lovely effort on his left to give the hosts the lead against his former club. Always threatened with the ball, though his technique did not always match his energy. Very lively.
Combined greatly with Britton to control central midfield against the more illustrious opponents, the diminutive playmaker passed and controlled the ball very well throughout.
Thankless up front where he could do little more than chase the ball.
Failed to meet his only challenge on the day when Scott Sinclair's finessed shot floated into his top corner. Got in a muddle in the first half which almost proved costly.
Skinned repeatedly by Dyer throughout a frustrating first half. Contributed generally to his side's better performance going forward after the break, but he had no answer for the Swans winger on his back foot. Sent off after 85 minutes for yet another poor tackle on the sprightly winger.
Composed in the centre of his side's defence, Ivanovic dissuaded the few attacks Graham attempted throughout a decent match for the Serb.
Poor going forward, particularly in the first half when he was wasteful with his passing and dribbling. Began making better decisions in the second half before his side came under the cosh when reduced to ten men.
Involved on both sides of the ball. Combined with Sturridge at times though the winger probably brought more to the relationship. Began causing problems as he attacked more in the second half.
Played mostly in no-man's land in front of the central defenders. The Spaniard was outworked by the Swans' midfield as he seemed more concerned with avoiding major errors than he was with really expressing himself.
Had little on offer at the Liberty, including issuing a few hopeless free-kicks to sum up a fairly mediocre performance.
Benefited from a wider berth in his team's better second half, but was relatively ineffective for the opening 45 minutes and eventually taken off.
The creative lynchpin of his side got going more in the second half but overall was outplayed in the centre by the more passionate Swans' midfield.
Created several good chances for himself throughout but his finishing was always wayward. Still his side's best player on the evening.
Failed to inspire fear into the Swansea defense, rarely looking dangerous. The Spaniard clearly wanted to score but his technique did not match his desire.

Almost scored an absolute cracker with his first touch. Added experience and composure in Romeu's wake. His longest run-out since returning from injury should prove fruitful in his return to full fitness.
