Swansea City will be hoping to pull off a shock win when they travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea on Wednesday.

Having lost seven and won just one of the last 10 Premier League fixtures, Paul Clement’s team are available at 12/1 (13.00) with dabblebet to secure a much-needed morale boost with a surprise victory in West London.

A creditable 1-1 draw away to Liverpool brought an end to the Blues’ four-match winning streak in the league, although they are clear 1/5 (1.20) favourites to come out on top once again here.

The guests were also held to a stalemate in their own clash against Bournemouth at the weekend, and you can get odds of 13/2 (7.50) on them coming away with a share of the spoils in this one.

Considering 11 teams - including Arsenal and Liverpool - have conceded fewer goals than the Swans so far this league season, it is not hard to pinpoint the main reason for their current position in the bottom three.

After selling the influential Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente in the summer, the Welsh outfit have suffered from a severe lack of cutting edge in attack this campaign, hitting the net a league low seven times in the opening 13 fixtures.

The fact that Alvaro Morata alone has scored more goals than the entire Swansea team underlines how outgunned they are in this clash, a disparity that is not helped by the ineligibility of Chelsea loanee and four-goal top scorer Tammy Abraham.

Having conceded just once their last four league fixtures, odds of 8/11 (1.73) certainly look like a safe bet on Antonio Conte’s men keeping a clean sheet on their way to a fifth victory in six given their opponents’ struggles up front.
