Wednesday evening sees the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg between Chelsea and Swansea City take place and we should be in for a superb 90 minutes of action. Chelsea will be looking to win this one comfortably and take the pressure off themselves for the second leg, whereas Swansea are sure to fancy their chances of making the final should they keep this encounter close.

Coming to Stamford Bridge is never easy of course, but after Queens Park Rangers won 1-0 here in the Premier League last week, the Swans might be confident of a result. They have to be at their absolute best for the entire 90 minutes, but we have seen the Welsh side do just that on numerous occasions this campaign.

Rafael Benitez is likely to put a full strength side out and could even start his new signing, Demba Ba, as he is eligible to play after his recent move from Newcastle United. The Senegalese started his Chelsea career flying with two goals against Southampton in the FA Cup and if given the opportunity, he will stick the ball in the back of the net on Wednesday evening.

Chelsea have Ba, but Swansea have a goal-scorer of their own – Spanish sensation Michu. He has 15 goals across all competitions this season and is another who looks like putting any half-chance away at the moment.

When the Blues are at their best, there are not many better teams in England than them, especially when Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar all link-up well just behind the striker. But, they have been inconsistent under Benitez and had the tendency to go missing in a match. They cannot afford to do that here as their opponents can cause problems.

Over two legs though, the European Champions should book their place in the final of this Capital One Cup. The advantage Swansea have is that they are at home in the second encounter, but when you look at both teams, you have to say that the Londoners are the stronger.

We have seen some strange goings on in this competition though, including a match that ended 7-5 and a side from League Two making the semi-finals, so don't take your eyes of this one as we could see something special.

The atmosphere should be electric, especially from the thousands of travelling Swansea fans and it might just be 90 minutes to remember at Stamford Bridge.
