Swansea 0-1 Chelsea: It wasn't pretty but an important three points.

Chelsea beat Swansea 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium and took an all important three points despite not being anywhere near our best yesterday. With Liverpool beating Manchester City, it was important that Chelsea responded and thankfully they did.

I have said it time and time again on here, we are at the business end of the season and as we move from game to game, points are all important. No matter if you are playing well or not being at your best, you have to grind out results and that's exactly what Chelsea have done.

Chelsea could have played better, could have played at a higher tempo and should have had more shots on target with only three out of twenty six making the goalkeeper work, but the fact that we took one of those chances is what has made the difference when we look at the Premier League table this morning.

If anything, the game was in contrast to a pulsating affair at Anfield before us. As soon as Swansea had a player sent off after only sixteen minutes for TWO yellow card offences in the space of two minutes, Swansea were always going to dig in, drop deeper and make life difficult for us.

Being honest, it became frustrating as we got ourselves into good positions but were never clinical enough with Mohamed Salah being the main culprit missing two or three good chances to score.

Demba Ba popped up with the goal halfway through the second half after a good break in midfield from Matic and a ball over the top to the big man. That's where Chelsea are at their most dangerous, when we move the ball quickly and at pace and force the opposition onto the back foot. It was a great finish from Ba who has had a massive week.

Swansea did have their moments also notably through Wilfried Bony up top who made Petr Cech work on more than one occasion. But, it's another clean sheet for Cech and this back four of ours who continue to provide the team with a solid foundation to build from.

So we have a weeks break now to prepare for Sunderland on Saturday evening and once again, another chance to take another important three points with Liverpool heading to Norwich. We remain two points behind the Anfield side with all eyes forward to our meeting in two weeks time.

Back to yesterday and after seeing Liverpool's result earlier in the day, it was important that one way or the other, Chelsea responded. Thank god that eventually, we did!
