Five things you missed from Chelsea's 2-2 draw at Swansea City

Published Add your comment

Swansea City and Chelsea played out a thoroughly entertaining 2-2 draw this afternoon.

Goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Leroy Fer were sandwiched by Diego Costa’s brace as Swansea spoiled Chelsea’s 100 per cent record.

But Antonio Conte will be delighted to return to London with a point. It did, after all, take an 80th minute equaliser for the Blues to earn a point.

Two goals inside of three second-half minutes put the Swans in the driving seat, rather against the run of play. Chelsea were so comfortable in the first half and looked well on their way to a fourth win in four.

That it took Costa to prop up late on with a sublime equaliser, however, shows just how difficult Francesco Guidolin’s team made it for the visitors.

Here are five things you missed from the Liberty Stadium.

Diego Costa has previous when it comes to overhead kick goals

His effort for Atletico Madrid against Getafe in 2013 was even better than his one against Swansea.

Neil Taylor doesn’t enjoy being substituted

No player enjoys being taken off in a football match, least off all in the first half. Neil Taylor suffered that humiliation today when he was replaced by Modou Barrow in the 41st minute.

The Wales international showed exactly how he felt when Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin offered to shake his hand.

Some lip-readers claim Taylor was disappointed that Guidolin didn’t wait until the interval to replace him.

Marcos Alonso likes a rabona

Diego Costa has an incredible record versus Swansea

Diego Costa has now scored seven goals against the Swans in the Premier League. That’s more than any other player.

Talk about being a nightmare.

Gylfi Sigurdsson set a record, too
