Chelsea 1-0 Swansea player ratings, stats and reaction: Blues ace bags first goal as Conte sent off in narrow win

Chelsea had Antonio Rudiger to thank tonight, as the Blues ace scored the only goal of the game as Antonio Conte’s side beat Swansea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

The game very few chances, with the only coming in the 54th minute, after German international Rudiger, who joined the Blues over the summer from Roma, as shot from Kante was deflected onto the head of the defender, who turned the ball home.

Man of the Match

Chelsea’s summer signing Antonio Rudiger will take the plaudits this evening, as the former Roma ace scored the only goal of the game as the Blues kept up their impressive run of form.

As well as scoring, the 24-year-old was solid in defence tonight, as the centre-back was always on hand to shut down the Swans’ attack.

Flop of the Match

Despite only being on the field for 15 minutes, Chelsea’s Victor Moses had an absolute shocker tonight.

The Nigerian international had an awful cameo, with the winger constantly misplacing passes and having absolutely no effect on the game at all.

This from Opta shows just how dominant the Blues have been in the air this season, something they certainly displayed tonight
