Swansea City: Carvalhal welcomes relegation pressure

Keep winning and hope top-4 rivals slip up: Conte

The goal against Swansea at the weekend was the Spaniard's first goal in the league since August.

Chelsea's chase for Champions League qualification gathered pace on Saturday when Cesc Fabregas clinched a 1-0 win at Swansea that deepened the hosts' concerns about being relegated from the English Premier League. Peculiarly, if Chelsea finish the season with three more league wins and Liverfools drop points in their final fixture with Brighton and Hove Albion, then the Blues will pip the Reds to a top four position.

Spurs take on Watford at Wembley on Monday night, which is their game in hand over Chelsea.

"And if your best scorer has scored only 12 goals it means it is very hard to fight for something this season".

That was the biggest gain since February 2017 and followed a 1.7 percent rise in February, the Commerce Department said on Monday. Consumer spending on whole rose 0.4 percent in March after decreasing 0.2 percent in February.

Chelsea's third successive away win has also given them hope of overtaking Liverpool, who were surprisingly held at home by lowly Stoke on Saturday.

Despite finishing the game strongly, Carlos Carvalhal's men failed to restore any form of parity and the Swans are now without a win in their last six league games.

"It's important for everyone to put in a shift to help us get a result", Andre told Jack Magazine.

After Fabregas had curled home a sublime shot following Hazard seizing on a mistake by Andy King in the fourth minute, Chelsea failed to make the most of other clear opportunities.

There was also a late bust-up between the Chelsea skipper and Jordan Ayew after the Swansea striker shoved the defender in the back with a late challenge, although Cahill went down holding his head.

Carlos Carvalhal's outfit now sit 17th on the log, a spot above the relegation zone.

Swansea have recovered from being five points adrift at the bottom when Carvalhal took over in December and the former Sheffield Wednesday manager said his side have exceeded expectations already. "The defender tries to get the ball but he doesn't see Dyer".
