Torres centre-stage as Chelsea win
Fernando Torres scored again for Chelsea but his rash sending-off will attract more attention as the 10-man Stamford Bridge outfit swept aside Swansea 4-1.
Sunday's defeat at Manchester United had seen £50million man Torres score for only the second time in his Blues career before producing one of the worst open-goal gaffes in Premier League history.
He found the net on Saturday with another fine finish before seeing red for inexplicably diving in studs first on Mark Gower in between two Ramires goals which were followed by Ashley Williams' consolation and a comeback goal for Didier Drogba.
The hosts went ahead in the 29th minute when Juan Mata chipped a ball over the top and Angel Rangel played Torres onside, allowing him to swivel and find the bottom corner.
It was nine minutes from half-time when a sweeping breakaway saw Ashley Cole pick out Ramires, who drilled the ball through Michael Vorm's legs.
Torres then undid all his good work when he was sent off three minutes later for a shocking tackle on Gower.
The visitors laid siege to the Chelsea goal after the restart and only a desperate challenge from John Obi Mikel prevented Leroy Lita converting Rangel's cross and the subsequent corner was headed goalward by Williams, only for Jose Bosingwa to clear off the line.
The 10 men made it 3-0 a minute later, Ramires too easily cutting inside Williams before passing the ball beyond Vorm.
Swansea finally netted in the 86th minute, the unmarked Williams heading home his first Premier League goal from Gower's free-kick.
Williams went close to nodding in his second in stoppage time and Ramires dragged a hat-trick chance wide before Drogba turned on Florent Malouda's pass and steered the ball beyond Vorm to add some gloss to the scoreline.
