Swansea City eye Wembley after 2-0 win at Chelsea
SWANSEA City have Wembley in their sights after securing a shock 2-0 win at Chelsea in the first leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final.
Michu's strike six minutes before the interval handed Michael Laudrup's side a precious away goal ahead of the return match at the Liberty in two weeks' time.
And they doubled their lead in injury-time when substitute Danny Graham pounced on a mistake by Branislav Ivanovic to score.
The first goal also came from an error by Ivanovic.

Swansea's top scorer netted for the 16th time this season when Jonathan de Guzman pounced on a on the Serbian's short back pass.
Michu received the ball 20 yards out and carefully slotted it between two defenders and inside Ross Turnbull's near post.
Before that, Swansea had to soak up waves of Chelsea pressure.
Juan Mata and Ramires both missed chances, while Gerhard Tremmel produced a full length save to deny Ivanovic.
Swansea also had their backs to the wall in the second half, though the hosts found clear-cut opportunities harder to come by.
Frank Lampard and Demba Ba were thrown on as Chelsea's chase for an equaliser became more desperate.
Then, just as Swansea were about to celebrate a hard-fought win, their night got even better.
Graham had only been on the field nine minutes when he was presented with a gift-wrapped chance to put Swansea firmly in charge ahead of the second leg.
