IT was one of the most amazing nights in the history of Swansea City, and not just because of what happened on the pitch.

Swansea drew 0-0 with Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium in January last year, after putting two past them at Stamford Bridge.

It earnt the Swans a place in the final of the Capital One Cup, which they went on to win.

But, of course, what the world was talking about at the end of the game was that incident between ball boy Charlie Morgan and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

Hazard was sent off for appearing to kick Morgan who was lying on top of the ball at the side of the pitch.

But, more importantly, it was a result against Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans earnt another against Chelsea with a 1-1 draw in January, 2012, at the Liberty Stadium.

The point is, the Swans have a decent record against Chelsea at the Liberty, and will be hoping to go one better on Sunday at 4.07pm (the unusual kick-off time is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster) and claim all three points.

To inspire them, and as a reminder for us all, above and throughout this story are pictures from that famous Capital One Cup game.
