Predicted Chelsea lineup (3-4-3) vs Swansea City, Giroud and Emerson start

Predicted Chelsea XI vs Swansea City

Chelsea will seek to continue their recent winning streak when they make the trip to South Wales to take on Swansea City. The Blues have won their last three games across all competitions.

Formation: 3-4-3

Lineup:

Thibaut Courtois was left out of the matchday squad for the FA Cup semi-final last weekend but the decision was rather a tactical one with Willy Caballero keeping his position. The Belgian should reclaim his number one role.

In central defence, Conte may stick with the same combination from the previous weekend and this should witness Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and Antonio Rudiger maintaining their positions.

At right wing-back, Victor Moses is a strong contender to start after his recent return to form whilst Emerson should keep his spot on the opposite end with Marcos Alonso still serving his retrospective suspension.

In midfield, Cesc Fabregas and N'Golo Kante have been the preferred combination under Conte in recent months and the pair should keep their places ahead of Bakayoko, who has yet to fully convince with his abilities.

Further forward, Willian and Eden Hazard have been pretty much constants on the right and left side of the attack and they should accompany Olivier Giroud, who should lead the line ahead of Alvaro Morata.
