Who will meet Bradford City in the Final of the Capital One Cup on February the 24th?
Swansea City start the match protecting a 2-0 lead over Chelsea from their 1st leg meeting at Stamford Bridge.
In front of Swansea’s home fans, it will be interesting to see how Michael Laudrup sets his team out. Will The Swans try to defend their precarious lead or will Laudrup prefer to go on the offensive?
News that Spanish star striker Michu has signed a year extension to his contract will no doubt lift the faithful inside the Liberty Stadium.
One thing that should worry Swansea is that Chelsea have a very good record away from home. They’ve won all 7 of their away games (World Club Championship aside) since the turn of December last year.
Rafa Benitez has came out in public to claim he is under no pressure from the higher echelons within Chelsea (i.e. Roman Abramovich) to deliver silverware since he took over but rather than to secure that prized 3rd place ‘Champions League’ spot within the Premier League.
Chelsea have Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel on Africa Cup of Nations duty but could see a return of John Terry who has been missing from action since last November. Influential midfielder Frank Lampard is expected to start.
