Swansea City winger Scott Sinclair says his decision to leave Chelsea last year was motivated by a lack of playing time.

The 22-year-old was left frustrated by limited appearances for The Blues and constant loan spells during his five-year tenure at Stamford Bridge.

Since leave Chelsea, Sinclair has flourished with Swansea, guiding them to promotion from the Npower Championship, which included a hat trick in the play-off final, and having the honour of scoring the club's first ever goal in the Barclays Premier League.

"Would I have got a chance at Chelsea under Andre Villas-Boas?" Sinclair said.

"It depends what you mean by chance. To me, 10 minutes here and there is not a chance.

"A chance is playing week in, week out.

"They have some great quality youngsters but it's very difficult for them to get in."

Sinclair will get the opportunity to show Chelsea what they missed out on, when Swansea travel to west London this weekend.
