Chelsea continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season under new manager Antonio Conte, as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Swansea in a thrilling tie at the Liberty Stadium on the weekend.
The Blues had dominated the first half and deservedly took the lead through a fine finish from Diego Costa who capitalised on some poor Swansea defending.
It wasn’t until the second half that the action truly begun however, and the game quickly turned on its head thanks to two quick fire goals from the home side.
A Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty followed by a controversial goal from in-form Leroy Fer – who appeared to foul Gary Cahill in the build-up – gave Francesco Guidolin’s side a shock lead.
Chelsea piled on the pressure however, and an 81st minute over-head kick from that man Costa levelled the score to give both sides a hard fought point.
While the result may be seen as a slip-up for the Blues – who undoubtedly should have taken all 3 points from the Liberty – it still means they are unbeaten in all competitions under Italian Conte and sit second in the Premier League, behind only Manchester City who have won all four of their games so far.
At the tavern, we thought we would try and sum up Chelsea’s season thus far in THREE vines, and these were the ones we selected. An accurate description don’t you think?
