Chelsea’s road to reclaim their position as the top dog’s in England went through a reinvigorated Swansea City side, with the Blues seeing off the Welsh side 3-1.
The win wasn’t without with its flaws and even a little bit of luck, but it was a valuable three points for Antonio Conte’s men nevertheless.
There’s no doubting the fact that the Italian manager has done a stellar job so far during his time at the club. His classy demeanour has helped the Stamford Bridge faithful forget the memories of last season, even though a lot of Chelsea’s bad memories are associated with Jose Mourinho, a man held with high regard in the club’s history.
That being said, there was a moment missed by TV cameras that would have taken the home fans down memory lane. Claude Makelele, who is the assistant manager to Swans manager Paul Clement, was greeted with a hug from Chelsea skipper and ex-teammate John Terry.
