Chelsea face an uphill battle to reach the Capital One Cup final – but the Tipster is backing Demba Ba to help his new club overturn their first-leg deficit by scoring against Swansea City.

Our resident betting expert is backing the Blues to score at least twice at the Liberty Stadium as Rafael Benítez’s side look to book their place in the Wembley showpiece.

Meanwhile, our man-in-the-know is tipping Theo Walcott to continue his goal-scoring run against West Ham and is backing the Gunners to win without conceding.

Ba to score any time for Chelsea v Swansea – 5/6

The Tipster reckons Benítez may have been preserving Ba for the trip to Swansea after the Senegal international came on as a late substitute in a win against Arsenal. The 27-year-old has scored 16 goals in all competitions this season, including three for his new club. He is yet to net in the Capital One Cup, but the Tipster is backing Ba to end that duck by scoring against Swansea at 5/6.

Chelsea to score over 2.5 goals v Swansea – 12/5

Since Benítez took the reigns at Chelsea they have been markedly better on the road than in front of a hostile Stamford Bridge crowd. They’ve managed just three wins from eight at home in all competitions. Since returning from the Club World Cup, they have won their last five games in all competitions away from home, scoring an impressive 17 goals in those five games. With this in mind, plus the fact the Blues need to overturn a two-goal deficit, the Tipster likes the look of Chelsea to score over 2.5 goals at 12/5.

Arsenal’s Walcott to score any time v West Ham – Evens

As the Tipster predicted at the weekend, Walcott marked his new Arsenal deal with a goal against Chelsea. The England international has been in good form of late, scoring eight goals in his last 11 appearances in all competitions, including that strike at Stamford Bridge. West Ham struggled to cope with Loic Remy’s pace on Saturday, so the Tipster is backing Walcott to score any time at Evens.

Arsenal to win to nil v West Ham – 6/4

After going three games without a win in the league, the Tipster expects Arsenal to return to winning ways against a West Ham – a team who have been very poor on the road this season. Sam Allardyce’s men have tasted defeat in four of their last five away games, and even worse, have failed to score in their last four away games. With regard to West Ham’s profligacy in front of goal on their travels, Arsenal to win to nil is a nice bet at 6/4.

The long shot: Chelsea to qualify on penalties – 22/1

Benítez has quite an impressive record in cup competitions, having won the FA Cup and Champions League during his reign at Liverpool. Both of those trophies were on penalties, while the Reds actually beat the Blues courtesy of a shootout en route to that final in 2005. Furthermore, Chelsea also won their only European cup on penalties this May. The Tipster reckons Chelsea can mount a comeback against the Swans, who will be nervous with a trip to Wembley at stake. This edition’s long shot is Chelsea to qualify via penalties at very good odds og 22/1.
