MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Andre Ayew: The summer signing impressed on his debut, with his equalising goal in the first half a moment of real quality. Having seen his initial attempt blocked, the former Marseille forward showed great intelligence to drag the ball back before rifling home.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

This was always going to be a difficult opener for Chelsea and so it proved. The hosts started well enough but were unable to cope with Swansea's increased intensity, leading to desperation on and off the pitch. Mourinho simply sat back and laughed as things went against his side.

MOAN OF THE MATCH

The constant haranguing of referee Michael Oliver and his assistants - there looked very few decisions he got wrong.
