Ashley Cole's experience and stability will help Chelsea if they are to challenge for the title this season.
Cole made a rare start against Swansea, and took his chance to impress by storm, with Chelsea's number three not only helping to keep a clean sheet, but also chipping in with an assist also.
Cole might not get another chance for a while, with his rare start only coming because usual team member César Azpilicueta was rested because of their game against Manchester City at the weekend.
Tougher fixtures will come where a better performance will be needed from the team in general, however three points for Chelsea and 90 minutes with a smidgen of confidence for Cole will really help both parties.
