Michael Laudrup believes that Chelsea are under more pressure than Swansea City to get to the League Cup final.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup believes that Chelsea are under pressure to reach the League Cup final and clinch a trophy this season.

The Premier League opponents go head to head in the second leg of the semi-final at the Liberty Stadium tonight, with the Blues sitting on a 2-0 deficit.

"One of their players, and I'm not even talking about the most expensive one, has cost more than our squad put together," The Express quotes Laudrup as saying.

"I imagine that when they pay £30m, £40m or £50m for a player it's not just because he's a nice guy. They want trophies every year, just like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich or Juventus. I'm not under that sort of pressure at Swansea. They don't ask for that. If we can get to the final then it will be great."

The winners of tonight's game will go up against Bradford City at Wembley following the League Two side's victory over Aston Villa.
