Name the Starting XI - Swansea (a)

Name the Starting XI - Swansea (a)

South Wales, and a date with destiny beckons!

Chelsea, this Wednesday, travel to the Liberty Stadium looking to do the almost impossible and come back from a 2-0 first leg deficit, to not only win the semi-final but also reach Wembley for the Capital One Cup Final.

As we`re all aware, Swansea are no mugs on their own patch and Michael Laudrup`s side will be confident that, in their centenary year, they can reach a Wembley Final by holding off our challenge.

Therefore, purely for fun, we`re asking you to predict which starting eleven Rafa Benitiez will opt for.

So, if you fancy having a punt, simply leave your starting eleven (plus a few words explaining your selection) in the comments box below.

Cech, azplicueta, Cahill,terry, cole, luiz, lampard, mata, Oscar, hazard and Ba. I believe this is where our experienced players need to step up to the fore. We can win this if they have the leadership and the calmness to take the others through. Cech, terry, lampard, and cole have been there and done it in semi fainals for years, come on lads one last effort to get our transitional team to its first final.

Although it might not be an ideal situation for insistence on rotation,i see Rafa clinging on to his keeping the team ''fresh'' in considering team selection. We may yet again see one or two changes in the winning team of the last match. I think the line up will not be very different from this in a 4-2-3-1 syst.: ...................cech..................... Azpi.......Cahil.....Terry.....Cole ...........Luiz........Ramires......... Oscar..........Mata..........Hazard ..................Ba....................... Although i dont rule out Marin taking Oscar's place ,Bert for cole in the starting XI,but given the low risk tendency in this match,i have a feeling my prediction will be 99% accurate.
