Laudrup: Still A Mountain To Climb To Beat Chelsea

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup admits his side still have a mountain to climb if they are to reach the Capital One Cup Final, despite beating Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Semi-Final first leg.

The Swans have given themselves a great start in their bid to reach the League Cup Final for the first time in their history, but they're only halfway there, and Chelsea will go all out to reverse the 2-0 scoreline at the Liberty Stadium in a fortnight's time.

Laudrup was obviously delighted with the result, which was helped by two individual mistakes by Ivanovic, but he's staying realistic about their chances of a trip to Wembley in February.

'To be honest I'm delighted with the result. I would lie if I said otherwise,'

'I think we have had some historic results already this season - winning at Anfield and at the Emirates. Winning at the European champions though is something very special.

'But there is still a mountain to climb. They have so much quality and we will have to play exactly the same and with the same intensity.

'They could still score three of four goals against us. But I am most happy about going into the second leg at home with a possibility to play a final at Wembley.'

'I think we knew it would be a difficult game,'

'The possession they had was much more than us - that's obvious. But to be honest they only had three big chances.

'They gave us two goals, but you have to score them. They are two mistakes but even if you take away the two goals they only created three chances. It was a marvellous fight.'
