Chelsea trails league leader Liverpool by two points with four games left but the two teams are still to meet at Anfield on April 27.

Ba struck firmly into the bottom left corner after a pass from Nemanja Matic at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea played most of the match with 10 men as Chico Flores was dismissed after only 15 minutes of play for a second yellow card after bringing down Andre Schurrle.
