Wilfried Bony hopes to end his Chelsea hoodoo with three points and a trademark celebration when the Swans take on the Premier League champions on Wednesday night (7.45pm).

The Ivorian looks set to lead the line once again in West London as Paul Clement’s side head to Stamford Bridge.

Bony captained the Swans during last weekend’s goalless draw with Bournemouth at the Liberty, with the striker denied a first goal since returning to the club after Jordan Ayew was adjudged to have fouled Nathan Ake in the build-up.

He now looks to open his account against Antonio Conte’s Blues – a side who Bony has an old score to settle with.

“I’ve not scored against Chelsea yet – they are the only top team I’ve not scored against, so I’m hoping to end that run on Wednesday night,” said Bony.

“Last weekend I was so close to getting my first goal since I came back here, and now I’m even more determined because I want to score.

“And if I do – and we win – then you can expect to see a dance celebration, that’s for sure. ”

The Swans head to Chelsea hoping to end their own barren spell, having picked up just one point from six visits to the Bridge.

Despite the Swans' record at Chelsea, Bony believes the visitors can cause an upset.

“We are not going there to defend. We are going there looking to get three points,” said the 28-year-old.

“They are the champions and will expect to win, but we have good players and we are a good team, so we are capable of going there and getting a result.

“We know we are not in a good position in the table, but we really want to get three points for the fans because they are always behind us and we want to repay them for their support.”
