They're now five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with four matches to play and their underwhelming form has prompted speculation about Conte's future.

"We dominated and created many chances but we scored only one goal, and in the final Swansea had the chance to draw". Despite finishing the game strongly, Carlos Carvalhal's men failed to restore any form of parity and the Swans are now without a win in their last six league games.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has suggested that he has been pleased with the amount of game-time given to Tammy Abraham at Swansea City. Christensen is playing an important season, his first for Chelsea in this pressure, and now I think it's right to give an opportunity to Gary to play more. It wasn't easy to get three points against Swansea because I think they are in a good run of form, especially at home. 'We have to compare Salah of four or five years ago, and not Salah now, ' he said.
