Dyer looks ahead to Chelsea test
11th September 2014
Nathan Dyer insists Swansea City will be looking to add another early season Premier League scalp when they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday (3pm).
The Swans face a top-of-the-table clash against Jose Mourinho's side, with both clubs having won their first three league games this season.
Chelsea kicked off their campaign with back-to-back victories over newly-promoted Burnley and Leicester, before hitting six past Everton last time out.
Swansea, meanwhile, enjoyed a memorable win at Old Trafford on the opening day before successive home wins over Burnley and West Brom.
And Dyer is backing his team-mates to produce the same heroics as they did against Manchester United as Garry Monk's side prepare to face a team who they haven't beaten since winning promotion to the top flight four years ago.
"There are no easy games in the Premier League," he said. "Burnley had nothing to lose when we played them recently, while West Brom have been in the league a long time and are a good side.
"But the way we conducted ourselves in both games was great. We'll take each game as it comes but all we can do is make sure we are ready for Chelsea now.
"They have got world class players and there's no reason why they shouldn't be challenging (for the title).
"But we've beaten big teams before and we'll do our homework and make sure we perform on the day."
Meanwhile, Dyer is one of five players nominated by Barclays for the Premier League's Player of the Month award for August.
The winger has scored three goals so far, including a brace against West Brom in a 3-0 win last time out.
And the 26-year-old paid tribute to the help of his team-mates as a catalyst for his recent good form.
"What helps the most is the players around me," he said. "Having the likes of Gylfi making passes for me makes life easier and we are getting more chances on goal.
"I'm making runs, getting in good positions and the goals have come
"But they have all been team goals and we are playing with confidence right now so long may it continue."
