Chelsea boss Benitez: Laudrup very clever at Swansea

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez is wary of Michael Laudrup's Swansea City tonight in their Capital One Cup semifinal clash.

Laudrup's side reached the last four with a fabulous 3-1 win over Liverpool at Anfield in the quarter-finals. Michu, who has scored 13 goals in the Premier League, is in fine form and they will believe anything is possible.

Benitez said: "Michael is clever. He has been a talented player and likes to play football on the floor, using the quality of the players he has.

"It's been good for him. He's had a team that's been working with different managers but in the same way. That's really good, that they do things in the way he wants them to be done.

"The style of football is what they did before. He hasn't had to change things."
