Swansea City inflicted the second shock home defeat in 8 days on Chelsea, goals from Michu and Danny Graham giving the Welsh club a 2-0 win in their Leagu Cup semifinal first leg on Wednesday.

Michael Laudrup’s Swansea, playing in their first major semifinal for 49 years, scored in the 39tth minute against the run of play.

Branislav Ivanovic blundered after receiving a pass from goalkeeper Ross Turnbull and Jonathan De Guzman robbed the Chelsea defender on the edge of the box before setting up Michu for a curling left-foot finish.

It was the Spaniard’s 16th goal of the season in all competitions and substitute Graham delivered a sucker-punch second goal near the end.

Swansea then delivered a second goal in stoppage time when substitute Graham rounded Turnbull before sliding the ball into an empty net.
