On Wednesday, Chelsea face off against Premier League flair side Swansea in the first leg of semifinal of the Capital One Cup.

Chelsea go into this match on the back of two 5-1 scorelines in their favour in their last 2 Cup matches, after a 5-1 thrashing of Southampton in the FA Cup at the weekend and an identical one over bitter rivals Leeds United in the quarterfinal match of this competition. A third one on the bounce would surely see the Blues through to the Wembley Final, but a high-flying Swansea will surely have other ideas.

Chelsea last won this competition 6 years ago in 2007, when a brace from
Mr. Cup Final himself Didier Drogba handed Jose Mourinho's men the Cup.




The Welsh club have had a stormer of a season, playing some of the best football in the Division and indeed the whole of England, and boast one of the signings of the season in Miguel Michu, who's scored 14 goals in 22 appearances for the Swans since his bargain £2m move to the South Wales club over the summer.

Swansea earned a draw against Chelsea in their November league fixture at the Liberty Stadium, although they struggled against an impressive Middlesbrough side in the quarterfinal of this competition last month, where only a Boro own goal put them through.




League Cup Semifinal First Leg - Chelsea vs Swansea 1964-65-LC
Chelsea became the first London club to ever win the League Cup, when the
legend-studded team boasting the likes of Peter Bonetti, Marvin Hinton,
Eddie McCreadie, Ron Harris, Barry Bridges, Terry Venables, and
Bobby Tambling lifted the trophy in 1965.




Missing for Swansea is no one save for Neil Taylor, who's out for the season. Chelsea will be without Petr Cech, John Terry, and Oriol Romeu, as well as Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel, who have left for the African Cup of Nations on Saturday.
