Michael Laudrup believes his Swansea side will benefit from being on the road in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final against Chelsea as they chase a first appearance at a major Wembley final.

The Swans have never previously got to this stage of the League Cup, although they did reach the last four of the FA Cup in 1964, and there will be few expecting them to triumph over two legs against a Chelsea squad including Demba Ba, Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Frank Lampard.

"I always preferred being away first in these games. I have done both as a manager and a player and if I had to choose I would prefer to play away first," said Laudrup. "The different thing is it is not a complete game, it is only the first half and we play the second half here in two weeks' time."
