The only goal came in the 26th minute, with a fine volley by Gylfi Sigurdsson after Jefferson Montero's run.

On-loan Chelsea striker AlexandrePato had the ball in the net early in the second half, but it was disallowed as the striker was penalized for handball in the build-up.

The result ends Chelsea's 15-game unbeaten run in the league and it remains in 10th place.

Resurgent Swansea is now 13th.
