  • Two horrible Ivanovic errors give Swansea a huge advantage in their Capital One Cup semi-final with Chelsea after a 2-0 first-leg win at Stamford Bridge. Michu and Graham score the goals for Swansea while Chelsea will point to the penalty claim which saw Ba booked for diving in an incredibly dramatic injury time. But the European champions will now have to overcome two away goals in the second leg. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.


    90 + 3
  • Ba thinks he has pulled one back for Chelsea from Lampard's pass but he is offside. What a finish to this game.

    90 + 2
  • It is another howler from Ivanovic, who plays a blind back-pass which Graham pounces on. The striker rounds Turnbull and despite, almost falling over the ball, finishes into the back of the net. Swansea are in dreamland after almost giving away a penalty.

  • GOAL GRAHAM (0-2)!!!

    90 + 1
  • ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  • Ba is booked for diving. He rushed onto a through ball and seemed to beat Tremmel to the ball. But both players miss it and go down in the penalty area. That could have been a penalty.

  • De Guzman and Hernandez are not on the same wavelength as the latter hits a forward ball to a non-existent run.

  • Ba has already made more of an impact than Torres. Benitez could come under pressure for his decision making and he will have to explain his selection in his post-match interviews.

  • Ba wins another header on the edge of the six-yard box but this time nods wide from Marin's cross from the right. It was not an easy chance.

  • Ivanovic floats a ball into the penalty area and Ba beats Williams in the air. But his header is straight at Tremmel.

  • That points is underlined as Luiz takes on a speculative long-ranger to show his frustration and blasts a long way over the crossbar.

  • Chelsea are beginning to look like they have run out of ideas. They have lacked any threat in wide areas and their crossing has been poor.

  • Chelsea make another change as Marin comes on for Oscar. Swansea replace goalscorer Michu with Graham.

  • But Swansea also look a bit of a threat on the break. Michu finds Rangel in a very advanced position but the full-back is offside.

  • Ba comes on to big cheers. Perhaps Chelsea fans are also pleased to see Torres being replaced.

  • Chelsea are getting ready to send on Ba for his home debut.

  • This is getting to be a nervy time for Swansea. If they can hang on, they would take a very important goal advantage back to the Liberty Stadium for the second leg. It is also an away goal.

  • Chico is left in a heap off the field after Cole had a little bit of a nibble at the centre-back's legs when competing for a ball at the byline.

  • Michu rolls the ball into the back of the net but Turnbull had stopped, because the offside flag was raised. It was tight but replays show Ivanovic stepped up just at the right time.
