SWANSEA City will play Chelsea in their first ever Capital One Cup semi-final.

The Swans reached the last four thanks to a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough, while Chelsea qualified after a 5-1 victory against Leeds United.

The first leg at Stamford Bridge will be played in the week commencing January 7, and the second leg will be played at the Liberty Stadium in the week commencing January 21.

The two sides drew 1-1 when they met at the Liberty for their Premier League clash in November.

    You have to beat the best to win, maybe a loss in the semis` wouldn`t be as hard to take as the final. So a win win for us...

    Chelsea are not exactly in the form of their life, they beat Leeds... woohoo! As if that was a result! When I watched Corinthians vs Chelsea I thought I was watching a League One match, and that is with Corinthians taking the game ultra seriously and Chelsea players having a point to prove... both were fairly poor. So let's suppose Chelsea regain some ground in the coming weeks, we should look to maybe get a draw at the Bridge, or sneak a win on the counter attacks like we did to destroy Liverpool 3-1. If we can get a 0-0 or 1-1 there... well... we can go for the throat here at home!!

    Strangely enough, under ML, our Team moves up a peg when playing class teams, as past results have proved. I am in awe when I listen to Michael Laudrup, saying that The Team doesn't need motivating when playing these sides, which of course has been proved. I strongly believe we are in a position to compete with Manu, their up for it I'm sure listening to their vibes. C'mon U Swanssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss....YEEHAA.....................

    End of the day, we gotta beat everyone to win, I dont know what is worse. Losing at wembley or losing at the game before wembley. So like I said before, we are now at that stage where we simply got to go for it and beat everyone to avoid disappointment!

    After all, it is maybe better to play against Chelsea over two games with the second one playing at home, than playing just one game in the final :). If Swans beat Chelsea in semifinal, then I am sure they are going to win the Cup.

    Just our luck to get the european champions in the game before wembley. But there were chelsea fans on the radio this evening saying they would have preferred either villa or bradford, so who knows!
