Swarbrick made a few questionable choices during the Premier League game, triggering Conte's furious reaction, but the final straw for him was a wrongly-awarded goal kick, which.
Paul Clement's Swansea, on the other hand, had sporadic chances to counterattack the reigning Premier League champions and keep on languishing in the relegation zone. Our job is to stay on the touchline and to suffer with your players. Their poor form has placed significant pressure on Clement, who will be looking for a win at his former place of work tonight.

The Daily Mail now reports that Real Madrid are monitoring Luiz's predicament as Barcelona and AC Milan also consider launching bids for the defender. We are not even at Christmas yet.
