Neil Taylor interview: Swansea are capable of challenging Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Swansea City left back Neil Taylor has told GiveMeSport that, despite being underdogs for the clash with Chelsea, his side will go there with a game-plan to try and claim all three points.

The Welsh international, who was in action for his country as they narrowly overcame Andorra in the week, has played all three of Gary Monk's side's games this season, and they have had a perfect start to the campaign, claiming a maximum nine points.

And, despite Chelsea also winning three out of three, along with their formidable home record under Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge career, Taylor believes there is no reason for fear in the Swansea camp.


"Obviously we're the top two at the moment, which is a nice feeling, but it's one of those where you know it's going to be a tough game. You set it up and you do as best as you can - that's all you can do against these teams," he told GiveMeSport.

"Chelsea have obviously added quality, and they'll control a lot of the possession. We understand that, and I'm sure they'll be looking to win every home game this season - that's going to be the aim of any team that wants to win the title. But that doesn't mean we can't challenge them."


And, Taylor is in no doubt that manager Monk has the ability to put together a plan that disrupts the title challengers in west London, much like they did at Old Trafford on the opening day.

"You have go there with a game plan - like we did at Manchester United," he concludes.

"Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are the teams that you would say look very strong this year, so you know how it is going to be when you play those sides.

"But we'll go there on Saturday, we'll do what we need to do, and you never know what might happen in football. We believe we have the tools and the ability."
