Chelsea's Capital One Cup win fuels talk of new era of dominance

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was delighted to beat Tottenham 2-0 in the League Cup final.

LONDON -- As soon as the whistle had gone at Wembley, Jose Mourinho celebrated winning the Capital One Cup 2-0 over Tottenham by picking up his mobile phone to deliver the good news to his wife. His personal medal cabinet was due a new arrival, a first since 2012, and perhaps it was ending that wait that led to the wild celebrations once he had hung up the phone.

For someone who has previously stated that his sole aim in football is victory, such moments are clearly to be enjoyed. "The taste of...

Liverpool vs. Manchester City: Will the Reds run out of steam?

Jordan Henderson makes a special appearance in the latest HWTLU to announce his name change. Also, the very angry Alan Tikitally continues his reign of Scottish terror.

Nick Miller looks at five key talking points regarding Sunday's clash between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield.

1. Will this game prove crucial for Manuel Pellegrini?

Another season and -- barring something thoroughly implausible in the Camp Nou -- another European disappointment for Manchester City. One of the theories behind Manuel Pellegrini replacing Roberto Mancini as manager was that he could bring Champions League success to this expensively-assembled squad. But in truth, they...

Diego Costa, Harry Kane prepare for Wembley battle in a tale of two strikers

The ESPN FC panel discuss why despite Tottenham's impressive victory over Chelsea when the sides last met, Chelsea remain heavy favourites in the League Cup Final.
The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Chelsea and Tottenham's Cup title match is more important than Liverpool and Manchester City's match.

Theirs is a comparison of an expensive foreign import and a great young hope of the English game starring for the team he supported as a boy. One has inspired cynicism, the other romanticism and in their own ways, Diego Costa and Harry Kane have become the leading men of the 2014-15 English season. On Sunday, their respective performances in the 2015 Capital One Cup final could well prove crucial to the final result.

Costa arrived in London in the precise mould that Jose Mourinho wants from...

1. Christmas in Qatar

Another step in the agonising process toward football's first winter World Cup was made on Tuesday when a FIFA task force recommended that the 2022 tournament in Qatar be held in November and December of that year, with some reports suggesting the event would only end two days before Christmas.
