Ashley Williams tells Swansea City to guard against complacency after beating Chelsea
ASHLEY Williams insists Swansea City will not become complacent after a 2-0 Capital One Cup semi-final first leg win over Chelsea moved them to within touching distance of Wembley.
Michael Laudrup's side have to quickly focus on Premier League action in the wake of Wednesday's heroics as they travel to play Everton tomorrow.
Swansea then face Arsenal in an FA Cup replay plus a league match against Stoke before Rafa Benitez's side arrive for the return match at the Liberty.
They are just 90 minutes away from a return to the home of English football two years after beating Reading there to secure promotion to the top flight.

But Williams has urged his team-mates to keep their feet on the ground because Swansea haven't seen off Chelsea yet.
"We've given ourselves that chance," said Williams. "It would be a crime if we went into the game thinking we've already gone through, but I don't think we will after listening to the boys in the changing room.
"We enjoyed the win without going too crazy, we know we haven't won anything yet, we are still a long way from Wembley, but hopefully we will get the job done.
"When you are in a good moment you have to keep it going as long as possible because you know a dip could be around the corner.
"We are trying to keep it going as long as possible in the league and both cups."
Swansea were looking to avoid heavy defeat to a Chelsea team loaded with stellar names.
Fernando Torres, Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Ashley Cole and David Luiz all started the game, while Frank Lampard and new signing Demba Ba were introduced from the bench.
But they were outdone by the rising star in Swansea's side.
Michu put the visitors ahead before Danny Graham gave them a stranglehold on the tie with a second in injury-time.
"It's a dream scenario," said Williams. "We would have been happy going to Stamford Bridge and getting a draw.
"We were thinking 0-0 and then bring them back home, but to be two goals up is a huge bonus.
"The second goal could be key and credit to Danny because he still had a lot of work to do when he got the ball.
"He's popping up with some really important late goals for the team lately which is brilliant.
"Once the second goal went in we could breathe a little bit more easily, but we know it's going to be a really tough task in the second leg.
"The boys up front are clinical and for us at the back that gives us inspiration and drive to keep a clean sheet, because we know that more often than not when the boys get a chance they are going to take it."
Swansea's defence also played their part.
Williams and Chico Flores were immense at the heart of the back four, while goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel produced a series of saves to keep the Blues at bay.
"We knew going to Chelsea was going to be tough and we got lucky a couple of times, they had some good chances but we knew that was going to happen and we would have to ride our luck if we were going to get something," added Williams.
"The second leg is going to be tough, we know they will get chances but so will we.
"We know we can create chances against anyone and we've seen the boys can take them.
"So we'll stick to the game plan that we've had all along. We don't have to change anything for the second leg."
