Swansea City’s Bony hopes to break Chelsea deadlock

The 28-year-old has never scored against the Blues and he is aiming to get off the mark when the Swans visit Stamford Bridge

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony hopes to end his barren run against Chelsea in an English Premier League.

The Cote d’Ivoire international is yet to score in past six appearances against the Blues for the Swans, Manchester City, and Stoke City.

And with Paul Clement’s side visiting Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening, the ex-Vitesse striker hopes to be seventh time lucky against the Premier League champions.

“I’ve not scored against Chelsea yet – they are the only top team I’ve not scored against, so I’m hoping to end that run on Wednesday night,” Bony told club website.

“Last weekend I was so close to getting my first goal since I came back here, and now I’m even more determined because I want to score.

“And if I do – and we win – then you can expect to see a dance celebration, that’s for sure.”

Swansea City are also without a win in their last six visits to Stamford Bridge - losing five times and drawing once -  but Bony is upbeat of the Swans' chances of picking three points against Antonio Conte’s side.

“We are not going there to defend. We are going there looking to get three points,” he added.

“They are the champions and will expect to win, but we have good players and we are a good team, so we are capable of going there and getting a result.

“We know we are not in a good position in the table, but we really want to get three points for the fans because they are always behind us and we want to repay them for their support.”
