  • Hazard's goal earns a scrappy 1-0 win over Swansea on Boxing Day to keep Chelsea on the pace with their Premier League title rivals. The Belgian was the lone star man on a forgettable afternoon in which Mourinho's team again fail to take their chances against Laudrup's toothless visitors at Stamford Bridge. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.


    90 + 4
  • Late corner for Swansea and surely their final chance. Chelsea just about scramble it clear after some confusion but it eventually deflects out for a goal-kick.

    90 + 3
  • Hernandez tries to take on Ivanovic near the corner flag but the Chelsea defender is always in charge and clears the ball down field.

    90 + 2
  • Dreadfully strange pass from Shelvey as he has the chance to put the ball into the box but instead sprays it wide and behind his team-mates.

    90 + 1
  • ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of four minutes added time before the final whistle.

  • Laudrup looks very disappointed on the touchline. His team just have not created enough going forward today.

  • Willian is back on and play restarts with a drop ball, which Lampard hits back to Swansea.

  • Willian is clattered in midfield and appears to be holding his head as he is helped from the field.

  • Swansea are trying to make a fight of the ending but Bony heads well wide. It looks like Chelsea are going to be able to stutter to a 1-0 win.

  • Ramires is booked for clattering Bony and the Brazilian will now be suspended against Liverpool at the weekend.

  • Schurrle forces Amat into giving away a corner and Amat is booked for some reason after the challenge. The corner is straight into the hands of Tremmel.

  • Mourinho is barking orders at his players from the touchline. He looks so frustrated as Swansea have not been a threat to his team all game.

  • Willian is on for Hazard. Hazard scored Chelsea's goal and has been the man of the match.

  • Chelsea counter-attack with a three-on-two break but Ramires does not pick the final pass before Britton gets back to challenge and then win a foul on the edge of the box.

  • Swansea need to start taking a few risks and maybe go long to Bony. Terry and Luiz have had it too easy this afternoon.

  • This is a nervy finish for Chelsea now due to their failure to take their earlier chances. Another corner from De Guzman on the left this time goes deep into the box and Ramires has to head clear. Chelsea are dropping deep.

  • A panicky clearance from Ivanovic gives Swansea a corner. Bony attacks De Guzman's delivery from the left but Ivanovic redeems himself with an excellent defensive header.

  • Hazard's corner is the worst of the lot as his lazy swing at the ball sees it daisy-cut its way into the box before being whacked clear by Swansea at the near post.

  • Ramires wins a corner on the right. It is Chelsea's 12th corner of the game. They need to finally make one of these count.
