    No sign of a Swansea equaliser. Chelsea are going 11 points clear at the top unless the visitors can find a second goal.

    Pedro receives a standing ovation as he is replaced by Nemanja Matic. Swansea are not out of this. Courtois almost gifts the visitors an equaliser after letting Sigurdsson's free-kick slip from his grasp.

    Heartbreak for Swansea. Pure joy for Chelsea. All eyes are on Lukasz Fabianski as the Swans keeper allows Pedro's curling attempt to slip under him and into the net.

  10. PENALTY APPEAL

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    Chelsea have got away with one there as the ball clearly strikes the arm of Cesar Azpilicueta, who is under pressure from Gylfi Sigurdsson.

    Referee Neil Swarbrick waves away protests from the players in white shirts.

  11. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    More frustration for Chelsea as another move breaks down. Victor Moses screams as the ball runs out of play. Swansea are within sight of another hugely impressive result under Paul Clement. 

  12. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    Eden Hazard whips in a delicious ball across the six-yard box but there is no blue shirt is sight. Chelsea are facing their third draw in four Premier League games unless they can find another goal.

  13. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    It's all Chelsea but there are signs of growing frustration among Chelsea's players. Diego Costa is unhappy and flings his arms in the air after an attacking move is brought to an end by the referee's whistle.

  14. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Chelsea 1-0 Swansea

    How did that stay out?

    Chelsea come desperately close to a second goal as Eden Hazard's cut back falls to Cesc Fabregas whose thumping first-time shot cannons off the bar.

  15. GREAT SAVE!

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    Instant response from Chelsea. Eden Hazard drills the ball towards the net from just inside the area but Lukasz Fabianski gets down well and sticks out a strong hand to keep it out.

  16. KICK-OFF

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    Chelsea have won their past nine Premier League games at Stamford Bridge. They have work to do if they are to make it 10.

    We're back under way.

  17. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    Someone lend Frank Lampard an umbrella. The Chelsea legend, who is guest of honour, is currently receiving a standing ovation as he walks around the pitch in a suit as the rain falls in London. Lampard isn't bothered about the weather. He's loving it.

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    Well, well, well. Who saw that coming? Certainly few people inside Stamford Bridge. What does it all mean as it stands? Chelsea's lead at the top is now nine points. Swansea, who started the day 15th, are four points above the relegation zone.

    Leicester City, the reigning Premier League champions, have dropped into the relegation zone as a result of Crystal Palace leading Middlesbrough.

  19. HALF-TIME

    Chelsea 1-1 Swansea

    Swansea score from their first serious effort on target. It's a long punt forward by Gylfi Sigurdsson from a free-kick inside the centre circle and Fernando Llorente is left unmarked to head home. 

    There's hardly any time to kick-off before Neil Swarbrick blows for half-time. Antonio Conte is furious.
