Swansea City 1-1 Chelsea – Premier League 31th January 2012
A last-gasp Neil Taylor own-goal saved Chelsea from another disappointing defeat on Tuesday night, after Swansea gave the home fans another superb display of pacy attacking football.
Ex-Chelsea man Scott Sinclair opened the scoring for the Swans late on in the first half, unleashing a superb strike which left Petr Cech helpless. The home side had plenty of chances to increase their lead, with Danny Graham guilty of more than one bad miss.
After the break, the visitors pushed for an equaliser, but saw Ashley Cole sent off after the England man picked up a second yellow for a rash challenge on Nathan Dyer. However, with the game all but over, it was the unlucky Taylor who would deny his side a notable victory, deflecting a Jose Bosingwa effort past Michel Vorm.
They may have managed to eek a point out of the game, but AVB’s side look anything but assured of a top four finish. The Swans, on the other hand, continue to blossom at the Liberty Stadium.
