Nigerian international, Victor Moses, is back in action after spending a few weeks on the sidelines due to injury.
Moses was introduced in the 75th minute in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
The home side were frequently denied by Lukasz Fabianski, but Antonio Rudiger’s second-half header proved enough for the Blues to extend their unbeaten league record to six games.
Swansea failed to register a single shot on target in West London and as well as remaining in the bottom three, Paul Clement’s side have now not scored a goal in four top-flight fixtures.
Just before the half-hour mark, Morata managed to get a shot away but with the ball heading for the roof of the net, Fabianski got a hand in the way to tip the ball over the crossbar.
However, it did not take long for the Blues to finally open the scoring thanks to Rudiger, who headed into the net from close range after Kante’s shot had been diverted into his path.
Chelsea did not waste time in pushing for a second but the home side were struggling to create clear-cut chances as Clement contemplated alterations on the touchline.
As the game ticked closer towards full time, Swansea began to offer more of a threat but Thibaut Courtois continued to be under-worked in the Chelsea goal as the Blues eventually introduced Eden Hazard from the bench.
The Belgian playmaker could not help his side to a second goal, but the home team always remained in control and were able to see out the contest in relatively comfortable fashion to head into Saturday’s clash with Newcastle United with 16 points from their last half-a-dozen league fixtures.
