Swansea boss Laudrup: To be so close to Wembley just fantastic

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says they'll be throwing everything at Capital One Cup semifinal opponents Chelsea.

Premier League survival remains Swansea's priority, but with a place in the final up for grabs, Laudrup will not be holding any of his players back.

"As a smaller club we cannot normally compete for trophies, so to be so close to a final is fantastic," he said.

"It is the first time for us to be in a semi-final for some time.

"It is the first time since 1964, that was a good year as I was born then so it is 48 years ago and it shows what an achievement this is.

"The chance to go and play in a final is very big for us."
