BLAST FROM THE PAST: Swans v Chelsea
16th January 2015
Swansea City 1 Chelsea 1
Barclays Premier League - Saturday, 3 November 2012
Pablo Hernandez struck a late equaliser to earn Swansea a deserved point against Chelsea at the Liberty.
The visitors started the better of the two sides and came close early on when a glancing header from Fernando Torres was cleared off the line by Leon Britton.
Torres, returning from suspension, might have done better with another header after a driven cross from Victor Moses was deflected into his path.
However, it wasn't until early in the second half that Swans goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel was forced into his first save as he kept out a low drive from Eden Hazard.
The German then did well to keep out Hazard's free kick, before the resulting corner was flicked home by Moses at the far post to give Chelsea the lead.
Petr Cech, by contrast, was relatively unmoved in the Chelsea goal as he kept out long-range efforts from Jonathan de Guzman and Nathan Dyer.
But the Swans kept probing and were rewarded with two minutes left on the clock as Pablo Hernandez found space on the edge of the box to fire into the bottom corner.
And it nearly got better for the hosts in injury time as substitute Danny Graham went in on goal but his effort was blocked by Gary Cahill.
SWANS: Tremmel, Rangel, Monk, Williams, Davies, Britton (Graham, 65), De Guzman, Ki, Hernandez, Routledge (Dyer, 65), Michu (Shechter, 79).
CHELSEA: Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Romeu (Ramires, 46), Oscar (Bertrand, 79), Mikel, Moses (Sturridge, 72), Hazard, Torres.
