Chelsea triumph at Wembley against Spurs

Posted by admin | 8 years ago | 2,608 times

Deflected strikes from John Terry and Diego Costa gave Jose Mourinho his first piece of silverware since returning to Chelsea, as the Blues beat Tottenham 2-0 in the League Cup final.

Spurs had been the better side for the majority of the first half, but, apart from a Christian Eriksen free kick that smacked against the bar, were unable to create any clear-cut opportunities.

Instead, Chelsea took the lead in the closing stages of the first half as Terry pounced to fire home as Willian’s free kick bounced around the Spurs area.

Gary Cahill almost doubled their lead ahead of the break, and the Blues were two goals to the good with 56 on the clock as Cesc Fabregas played in Costa whose effort was deflected past Hugo Lloris by Kyle Walker.

Tottenham searched for a way back into the game but their attempts became more and more desperate and it was Chelsea who went closer to a third goal as Fabregas headed wide following a well-worked free kick.

And the west Londoners were able to see out a win that handed them their fifth League Cup crown, and third across Mourinho’s two spells.
