FULL TIME: Three points for Chelsea but the win is overshadowed by Fernando Torres' sending-off after giving the hosts the lead. Ramires scored twice either side of the break while Didier Drogba scored four minutes into stoppage time. The Swans consolation came through Ashley Williams header.
Chelsea restore their three goal cushion as Malouda finds Drogba and he shows his clinical instinct once again firing the ball back across goal.
Mark Gower delivers another fine ball from the corner and Williams is allowed yet another free header, which he puts wide.
A lovely consolation goal for the Swans as Mark Gower's delightful delivery is headed into the back of the net by the big defender.
The Blues send the ball back to Cech and that is greeted with boos from the home fans. I guess nobody likes to see the ball go back 60 yards.
SUBSTITUTION: Josh McEachran makes his first Premier League appearance of the season coming on for Raul Meireles.
Chelsea will want to get Drogba fit what with Torres set to miss the next three games with that straight red card.
That is surely game over now as Jose Bosingwa's pass is collected by Ramires who evades the weak challenge of Ashley Williams and sidefoots the ball past Michel Vorm. Easy!
Chelsea's last clean sheet was against Stoke on the opening day of the season and they're well on their way to another one today.
It's all very comfortable at the moment. Danny Graham has yet to get involved since he came on but now he gets an opportunity and sets up Wayne Routledge who fires over the crossbar.
Swansea have gone off the boil in the past few minutes and it's all Chelsea as Anelka finds Raul Meireles and his deep cross just fails to find Ramires.
Wayne Routledge is unable to maintain possession for Swansea as Anelka drives forward bringing Bosingwa into the game.
Alex says: "I'm a chelsea fan and i think what has just happened to torres in the last two matches hes played sums up his season. Scores at old trafford then misses an open goal, now scores at the Bridge and gets sent off."
Talking about Anelka. He's only scored one goal in 18 games for the Blues. No wonder he decided to take on that shot from 30 yards.
Now Chelsea hit the crossbar! Nicolas Anelka doesn't have anything on and decides to have a pop at goal from long-range is is unlucky to find the woodwork.
SUBSTITUTIONS: Danny Graham replaces Leroy Lita for Swansea and also a change for Chelsea as Florent Malouda comes on for Juan Mata.
Nick is looking at the positives: "It's nice to see Torres score two weeks in a row, but the poor guy is cursed! If he can keep playing well I'm sure he will keep smashing them in! Form is temporary, talent is permanent, and he has talent!"
Ramires shows excellent technique on the edge of the area before seeing his dipping volley just miss the far post.
From the corner it's Williams again with a free header which is hacked off the line by Jose Bosingwa.
Angel Rangel gets away down the right from the attentions of Cole and delivers for Ashley Williams whose header is blocked for a corner.
Quick update from SKYBET. Chelsea seemed to be coasting until Fernando Torres' red card , but are still 1/66 to win this match. The Swans are 100/1 to find a win from here against the Blues, while a draw is 20/1. Go to www.skybet.com to place your bets.
Alan writes: "Looks like Brendan is going for broke with that substitution, nothing to lose!! Now to overturn a 2-0 deficit with a 3-2 Win!!"
Swansea hit the crossbar! Nathan Dyer's effort from the angle takes a heavy deflection off Mikel and the ball loops over Cech and hits the top of the crossbar.
Angel Rangel receives the ball in the box and his attempted pass looks for Leroy Lita but Raul Meireles clears just in time.
Ayden doesn't know what's wrong with Torres. "Sometimes you just don't know what's going on in Torres' head these days. One minute he scores a wonderful goal and the next he's off the field with a two footed challenge on the halfway line?! Was there any need? I thought he was going to have a brilliant game... Well I guess I thought wrong."
SUBSTITUTION: Wayne Routledge replaces the impressive Leon Britton for Swansea at the start of this half.
Ryan says: "Today was a day for Torres to show off and prove he has what it takes, which he was doing but just ruined it all with that pathetic challenege. When will he learn?"
HALF TIME: A half of real contrasting fortunes for Chelsea. Fernando Torres opened the scoring with only his third goal for the club but soon after Ramires had doubled the lead, the Spanish striker saw a straight red card for an awful lunge on Mark Gower.
There are two added minutes of stoppage time as Swansea win a free-kick but Chelsea clear their lines.
David writes in about Torres: "This guy just cant get a break, scores, misses a sitter, scores get a red card, set up on a plate for him today to bag a hat-trick, so frustrating."
Terry is coming off the field for some medical attention as Swansea give the ball back to Petr Cech. The Skipper is quickly back on the field.
Leroy Lita gets a free-kick from John Terry's tackle and they take it quick. Terry is holding his knee now.
So Chelsea fans, what do you think of that? And can Swansea come back from this? Let me know your views. firstname.lastname@example.org
The good times never last long for the Spaniard. He jumped in recklessly and Mike Dean had no option.
RED CARD: Fernando Torres catches Mark Gower with a two-footed tackle on the halfway line. That was ugly and he can have no complaints.
A long way back for Swansea now as Fernando Torres' picks out the run of Ashley Cole and he finds Ramires in so much space and the midfielder fires his shot through the legs of goalkeeper Michel Vorm.
At the other end Ashley Williams' flick header flies just wide of goal. A chance of a quick response by the away side.
So many Chelsea fans called it and he has done it. Torres breaks the deadlock at Stamford Bridge with a lovely right-foot finish from Juan Mata's deliciously angled pass over the top.
Swans keeper Michel Vorm is called into action for probably the first time in the game as Ramires shoots from long-range.
Dale reckons a shock might be on the cards today. He says: "Just wanted to say how much I am looking forward to a 1-0 win for the Swans today, after all Torres is playing! Also thanks to Chelsea for the gesture for the Miners Fund, big respect!" Yes, that was a lovely gesture!
Frustration for the hosts as Raul Meireles has a pop at goal from 35 yards. The ball drifts harmlessly wide.
What a battle between Nathan Dyer and Ashley Cole with the former coming out on top to the delight of the away fans. Clearly Chelsea are getting rattled!
Michael is happy that Lampard isn't playing today. He says: "I'd rather watch paint dry, then watch Lampard in midfield. They need to use players with pace that will link with Torres! AVB is a complete legend though, and he will bring success to the side. Plus he has gingers hair like me. I think it will be an easy win for Chelsea and Torres will get 2, also Mata with get one. Scott Sinclair will score against his former team though to prove them wrong!"
Fernando Torres is penalised as he brings down the impressive Leon Britton as he looked to get the ball onto his right-foot for a shot.
The pressure is starting to build on the opposition now as Chelsea start to press the ball in the middle of the park.
Nathan Dyer has to be alert as Ashley Cole looks to drift in behind. Andre Villas-Boas is not looking too happy with his side at the moment.
Juan Mata turns away in the area and sets up Ramires, who takes one touch before seeing his second attempt superbly blocked by Leon Britton. That looked a certain goal for the hosts!
Ashley Williams prevents a cross from the right but the ball falls to Raul Meireles who hooks the ball over the crossbar with a volley from just inside the area. Neat attempt from the midfielder who is sporting a mohican today.
Neil Taylor gets under the flight of an early Chelsea cross allowing Nicolas Anelka a sight of goal but the full-back does well to put the Frenchman off.
Lee is confident of a home win: "I think that we may see a couple from Torres today. That should stop the papers harping on about his (awful) miss last week. Swansea could score today though as I think Chelsea will push forward to ring up a big scoreline. Up the blues!!!"
The visitors have settled well and are enjoying plenty of the ball as Joe Allen attempts to break into the box from the right. Jose Bosingwa is having an uncomfortable time at the moment.
Nice play by the Swans as Mark Gower's cross is headed out for a corner after some lovely build-up play.
Big week for Chelsea with a visit to Valencia on Wednesday night. One for Juan Mata to look forward to.
Crucial challenge by Branislav Ivanovic as Scott Sinclair looked to break into the box. At the other end Raul Meireles is claiming a penalty but referee Mike Dean is having none of it.
Petr Cech is out of his goal and smashes the ball into the stands as Leroy Lita attempts to close him down.
Now Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine games, so some hope for the Swans this afternoon.
Jose Bosingwa delivers a poor cross and now Juan Mata attempts to break the visitors backline with a jinking run.
Dean writes in to say: "I'm a Chelsea fan who admires and respects a good Swansea side. I think we'll win though, with Torres and Mata scoring, will end up 3-2 winners."
This is a match that promises to be easy on the eye. It will be interesting to see how Swansea approach the game. Both sides have lined-up in a 4-3-3 formation.
By the way, referee Mike Dean didn't quite get the same reception! The teams are out and we're minutes away from kick-off.
Just to let you all know, Scott Sinclair just got an amazing reception from the home fans. Nice touch!

Swansea meanwhile, name an unchanged side from their first ever Premier League win against West Brom last weekend, with the fit-again Danny Graham on the bench.
So, Frank Lampard is left on the bench as Chelsea change all 10 outfield players from the midweek Carling Cup win. Manager Andre Villas-Boas recalls eight of those who started Sunday's defeat at Manchester United following Wednesday night's penalty shootout win over Fulham, with John Obi Mikel getting the nod over Lampard, and Nicolas Anelka starts ahead of Didier Drogba.
Rayhan is happy with the way AVB has his team lined-up today: "Chelsea look much better playing a 4-2-3-1 formation when Torres is playing, with Anelka on the left of midfield and Mata playing behind Torres. Decent line-up today, and i'm quite excited to see Meireles take that attacking midfield role today. Fancy him taking a few right footed blasts from outside the box! Torres has looked very very sharp this season and hopefully bags a brace or a hat trick which would definitely get all the fans behind him! Looking forward to the return of our top Drog! 4-0 win for Chelsea with Torres, Mata and Drogba on the scoresheet."
Alan from Swansea is optimistic: "This is a game Swansea are expected to lose, so anything out of it is a bonus for us! But we will still play our attacking passing game I am sure. Would be great to see Sinclair get a hat-trick, but one will do!"
Jonathan is confident of a home win: "I think Torres will be ready to show his full potential today. Swansea have lost some defenders going into this game and the Blues can punish it. 4-1 to Chelsea Torres with the Hatrick and Mata. Sinclair for Swansea."
Jordan says: "Chelsea with a easy win today 4-0. Torres to get a couple with the open goal miss haunting him still. Mata 1 and Drogba 1."
CHELSEA: Cech, Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Terry, Cole, Mikel, Mata, Meireles, Ramires, Torres, Anelka. SUBS: Turnbull, Luiz, Lampard, Drogba, Malouda, McEachran, Kalou.
SWANSEA: Vorm, Rangel, Monk, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Gower, Allen, Dyer, Lita, Sinclair. SUBS: Tremmel, Graham, Dobbie, Routledge, Moore, Bessone, Richards.
Ricky from Lincoln also thinks it might end up in a big Chelsea win. He says: "Personally some Chelsea fans are judging Swansea because they're newly promoted! I think it'll be 3-0 to Chelsea with Torres getting a couple and Drogba getting on the score sheet for his comeback. But then I think Swansea will be the better team for certain spells of the game! Hopefully it ends like 6-0 though (as all fans will wish). I hope Scott Sinclair has a good game aswell to prove to Roman and the others that he really is a top player who deserved a place in the team!"
Ben is confident of a big scoreline in Chelsea's favour. He says: "Hey Raz. I think Chelsea have a chance to run riot today, but we have to be weary. A lot of people are criticising Lampard too much. He's still one of our best players! I want to see a bit more of Romeu as he hasn't really shone yet. 6-0 Chelsea is my prediction. Torres, Drogba, Mata and Luiz on the scoresheet. It's optimistic, but we'll see what happens!" Indeed.
I think a lot of Chelsea fans are hoping for Torres to bank a few goals today. David says: "Hoping Torres has a good game today, bet on the hat-trick. Felt sorry for him last weekend scoring then missing a sitter. Today is the day his season really kicks off. Hope to see Lukaku as well. 4-0 Chelsea."
Dovydas is confident of a home win for Chelsea today and Torres to bag a couple. "I think chelsea will win today 3-0. Torres (2) and Mata (1)." By the way, how do you Chelsea fans think Mata has settled in since his move from Spain?
Here's the latest odds from SKYBET. Fernando Torres is 5/2 to exorcise the demons of his open goal miss at Old Trafford with the opening goal against Swansea and Chelsea are huge favourites to win at 1/5. A shock away win is 14/1 with a draw available at 5/1. Blues old boy Scott Sinclair is 9/2 to get on the scoresheet in 90 minutes. I'm going for a pre-match prediction of 3-1, which is 10/1. Head now to www.skybet.com to place your bets.
Alex wants the manager to give his youngsters a chance, saying: "I think AVB needs to start playing Lampard less. No doubt he's a very talented player still, but sometimes slows the game down. Start youngsters, hopefully see the likes of Romeu or McEachran."
Adam is first to write in this afternoon and it's clear he doesn't want Scott Sinclair scoring against his former club. He says: "I think it will be easy for Chelsea today 5-0, Drogba (2), Torres (2) And Mata to score. I hope Sinclair does not Score!"
The Blues are looking to get their campaign back on track following last weekend's defeat at Manchester United while Swansea, having recorded their first Premier League victory at home to West Brom, are now searching for their first away win of the season.
