Comments:

League position: 12th Swansea City had now won three consecutive Premier League home games for the first time since March 2013. The Swans' last six home games in the Premier League had produced a total of only seven goals, with no team scoring more than once.

Comments:

League position: 10th Combined with his first spell as manager at Chelsea, this was only interim manager Guus Hiddink's second defeat in the Premier League (won 17 in 28 games). This was the first league defeat in his second spell in charge and Chelsea's first game since it was announced that Antonio Conte would become their new manager in the summer. Chelsea had now failed to win any of the seven away games when keeper Asmir Begovic had played in the Premier League in this season (lost five).
