Massacre: Chelsea thrash Swansea to move five points clear

Chelsea have moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League with the 5-0 mauling of Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho’s side made a dream start as Oscar lashed the ball home inside the opening 60 seconds after being gifted possession by Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Oscar then fizzed another strike wide before Eden Hazard was denied by Fabianski, but Diego Costa made it 2-0 in the 20th minute with a composed finish after latching onto Cesc Fabregas’s through ball.

Costa was then gifted a goal by Federico Fernandez as the defender’s short back pass fell straight to the striker, who kept his composure to beat a stranded Fabianski.

Less than a minute later, Oscar grabbed his second goal of the match with a curling effort from the edge of the box.

The first real chance for either side in the second period came after 58 minutes, as Fabregas side-footed an effort straight into the hands of Fabianski.

Oscar, Hazard and Loic Remy all went close late on, but Andre Schurrle wrapped up an emphatic win with the fifth goal of the game 10 minutes from time.
