Chelsea 4-1 Swansea – Highlights

Fernando Torres scored and was sent-off as 10-man Chelsea beat Swansea City 4-1 in their Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

The first half was the tale of the inspired and the idiotic from Torres as the Spaniard followed a clinical strike for the opening goal with a quite ridiculously reckless lunge which saw him shown the red card after Ramires had doubled the hosts’ lead in the 36th minute.

The Brazilian capped off a distinguished performance with a third to complete his brace before Ashley Williams headed a late consolation for Swansea, but the returning Didier Drogba had the final say with a stoppage-time strike after coming on as a substitute to seal the three points.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas handed Torres a starting berth after he scored but missed a sitter in the defeat to Manchester United while Drogba, who felt he was “lucky to still be alive” following his collision against Norwich was confined to the substitutes’ bench along with Frank Lampard.
