Swansea won at Chelsea for the first time in 87 years to head into the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg with a precious two-goal advantage.The hosts dominated in the first half but an error from defender Branislav Ivanovic allowed Michu to curl home.The home side continued to press but Ivanovic was again at fault in stoppage time when Danny Graham seized on his poor backpass to seal the win.Demba Ba thought he had snatched a late goal only for it to be ruled offside.The win puts Swansea firmly in command heading into the second leg at the Liberty Stadium on 23 January as they look to end a 100-year wait for a first major trophy.Chelsea, though, were the architects of their own downfall.They enjoyed plenty of possession throughout the encounter but were let down by poor decision-making in the final third. The home side spent the initial exchanges patiently passing the ball around as they probed for potential openings in the Swansea backline.They were nearly rewarded in the 11th minute when Oscar and Eden Hazard combined to unlock the Swansea defence and present Ramires with a chance on goal, but the midfielder’s toe-poked effort lacked power and was comfortably saved by keeper Tremmel.That early chance was not a sign of things to come, however, as play once again settled into a pedestrian pace, although Chelsea continued to dominate.The home side did not trouble Tremmel again until the 26th minute when Hazard surged into the Swansea area before squaring a pass for the unmarked Juan Mata, but the Spaniard’s low shot was gratefully scooped up by Tremmel.By now Chelsea were looking a confident side and Mata almost made amends for failing to make the most of that opportunity minutes later when he raced onto Oscar’s smart back-heel but his shot trickled agonisingly wide of the far post. It seemed only a matter of time before Chelsea would take the lead but poor defending instead saw Swansea snatch the opener six minutes before the break.Ivanovic dithered with the ball just outside his own area and Jonathan de Guzman took full advantage, stealing possession before immediately passing to Michu and the in-form striker’s curled effort flew beyond Ross Turnbull, taking his total for the season to 16.Michu was clearly a player brimming with confidence and he attempted an audacious overhead kick early in the second half, but the ball sailed harmlessly over Turnbull’s goal.Tremmel maintained his side’s slender advantage just before the hour when Hazard rolled the ball across the edge of the area for Luiz but his well-struck effort was kept out by the Swansea keeper.The visitors were clearly content to try and protect their lead, much to the frustration of the home side, who continued to try and carve out an opening. Frank Lampard replaced Ramires with 20 minutes remaining, before Ba was introduced 10 minutes later, replacing Fernando Torres as Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez looked to reinvigorate his attack.Ba quickly made his presence known and felt he should have had a penalty as the game entered stoppage time after clashing with Tremmel when challenging for possession, but instead he was booked for diving.Any hopes of Chelsea snatching an equaliser were ended shortly after as Ivanovic’s poor backpass allowed substitute Graham to run in, round the keeper and fire into the empty net.Chelsea thought they had snatched what would have been a potentially important late goal when Ba powered a shot into the net from Lampard’s knock on, but the striker had strayed just offside.
How to pack for a week into one carry on caseDD TRAVEL: PACKING HAND LUGGAGE INFO TO AVOID HOLIDAY BLUES1. Choose the right bagGo for a material rather than a rigid bag because you can stuff more into it. A hard shell case can add 10lb in dead weight but does offer contents more protection from damage, thieves and sudden downpours. But a soft-sided case will look smarter for longer and is less unwieldy when storage space is limited. A bag with pockets at the front means you have easy access to your boarding card and passport.If you’re travelling with an airline that allows a duty free bag as well as hand luggage, then factor in what you can get into that – bottle of water, snacks, a heavy book, or more toiletries once you’ve gone through passport control. 2.Check your airline’s size and weight allowances.Ryanair has relaxed its restrictions and now you are allowed two bags (including a handbag), but the weight of your main one must be under 10kg. Easyjet’s bag size is the smallest, but it has no restrictions on how heavy it has to be.3. Plan ahead.Get out everything you plan to wear and lay it on your bed. Think ‘capsule wardrobe’, which just means choosing items that co-ordinate with others. Check long-term weather forecast for your destination. 4. Roll, don’t foldPut the heaviest items (shoes) at the bottom. To save space and to avoid creases, it’s best to roll clothes instead of folding them – you’ll be surprised at how much more you can fit in. Tuck underwear and swimwear into the corners of your bag and put rolled up socks inside of a pair of shoes to save even more space.5.Be Ruthless with ClothingWhatever clothes you get out ready to pack for your holiday, get rid of at least a third of them – you just won’t need them.6. Don’t Pack Unnecessary ItemsDon’t pack things that will be provided for you at your destination, for example, a hairdryer or towels. There’s no point carrying extra weight and using up valuable space for things that are easily available to you.. You will only be able to take 100ml bottles of liquid, sealed in a clear plastic bag in your hand luggage, so you can either take travel-size bottles or buy things such as toiletries and sun cream once you get to your resort. It is often cheaper to do this anyway.
