Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup thinks his side will benefit from playing the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi final away from home, when they meet Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tonight.
The Swans have a good home record against the reigning European Champions and have twice drawn 1-1 with the Blues at the Liberty Stadium.
However their only visit to Stamford Bridge since returning to the top-flight ended in a 4-1 defeat.
Laudrup is set to stick with stand-in goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel for the game following his performances in the competition so far.
The German has played throughout the run to the last four, and Laudrup feels Tremmel has earned the right to keep his place ahead of Michel Vorm as Swansea chase a first appearance at a major Wembley cup final.
Angel Rangel should be available after a calf problem, while Pablo Hernandez, Ashley Williams and Michu should all return to the starting line-up at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game and is set to name a strong side for the game.
The Blues will still be without 'keeper Petr Cech (groin) and captain John Terry (knee), while John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses are also unavailable having left for African Nations Cup duty with Nigeria.
Provisional Swansea City squad:
Vorm, Bartley, Flores, Williams, Britton, Lita, Michu, Graham, Hernandez, Dyer, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Rangel, Ki, Tremmel, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Davies.
Provisional Chelsea squad:
Turnbull, Hilario, Azpilicueta, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Luiz, Cahill, Cole, Bertrand, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Marin, Piazon, Torres, Ba.
