Interim manager Rafael Benitez is targeting his first trophy at Chelsea following the draw for the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup.

Benitez saw his side beaten 1-0 by Corinthians in Sunday's final of the Club World Cup in Japan but the Blues showed few signs of jet lag as they came from behind to beat Leeds 5-1 in the Capital One Cup quarter-finals at Elland Road and now take on Swansea in the last four.

"It's a team that likes to play football, likes to play on the floor and also try to keep the ball so I think it will be interesting," Benitez told Sky Sports 1. "Every competition is important for us; a top side has to try to win every competition and now we are in the semi-finals so we are close to winning."
