2011: Chelsea 4-1 Swansea City

Fernando Torres scored and was sent off in the first half as 10-man Chelsea beat Swansea City at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard broke the deadlock just before the half-hour and Ramires soon doubled the lead. But Torres was then shown a red card in the 39th minute.

Nonetheless Andre Villas-Boas' Blues increased their advantage after the break, with Ramires netting again.

Despite Ashley Williams pulling a goal back late on, Didier Drogba had the final word for Chelsea with a stoppage-time strike.

Chelsea remained third but moved within three points of leaders Manchester United, while Swansea dropped to 16th.
