1. Chelsea celebrate first silverware in Mourinho's second spell

The second coming of Jose Mourinho at Chelsea has its first silverware. Ten years after winning this same competition in Cardiff, his first trophy with the club, and with Manchester City's loss at Liverpool hardening their grip on the Premier League title, this was a blue-ribbon day.

Centre-back John Terry, a remnant...

Chelsea defence rises up to stop Spurs and claim silverware

ESPN FC's Craig Burley recaps Chelsea's dominant performance against Tottenham on their way to claiming the Capital One Cup trophy.

Chelsea claimed the first piece of silverware this season with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley.

Spurs started the match better as Chelsea struggled to adapt to the 4-3-3 system deployed by manager Jose Mourinho. With Nemanja Matic suspended and John Obi Mikel injured, Kurt Zouma was the surprise selection in midfield. The Blues' unfamiliarity with the system allowed Tottenham to establish their rhythm, with Christian Eriksen running the game. However, Chelsea...

Diego Costa's vintage performance leads Chelsea to Wembley glory

ESPN FC's Craig Burley recaps Chelsea's dominant performance against Tottenham on their way to claiming the Capital One Cup trophy.

LONDON -- Roman Abramovich hasn't always had a lot of luck with big-money strikers at Chelsea. Signed for the first time 11 years ago, Didier Drogba was clearly a palpable hit, while Fernando Torres offered mostly misses for 50 million pounds. Andrei Shevchenko was another crushing disappointment who never seemed more than a fraction of the player he had once been. Mateja Kezman, Adrian Mutu, Hernan Crespo, for one reason or another, none of them enjoyed the success his price tag implied.

But...

Jose Mourinho has fun with a water bottle during Capital One Cup final

Jose Mourinho has had a contentious relationship with the media of late, especially after Chelsea's recent 1-1 home draw with Burnley and his infamous "four moments" postmatch rant.

Yet Sunday's Capital One Cup final caught the Special One in a more playful mood. Maybe it was the weather, the Wembley atmosphere or simply the fact that his Chelsea side was enjoying a comfortable win over London rival Tottenham. Whatever it was, he found it within himself to have fun with a nearby cameraman who snapped...

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

Thibaut Courtois insisted they weren't solely focused on in-form Harry Kane and said, "We need to see how to stop him, but of course stop all of Tottenham."
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...

Capital One Cup victory could spark future glory for Chelsea or Tottenham

ESPN FC's Alison Bender looks ahead to the Capital One Cup final.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says it will be "an honour" to face Jose Mourinho's Chelsea in the Capital One Cup final.

For all the differences between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as teams right now, there was one common strand among their key players in the buildup to Sunday's meeting. Neither John Terry nor Christian Eriksen really mentioned the tangible prizes on offer -- the medals and the Capital One Cup -- themselves.

Instead, when asked about the significance of winning Sunday's final, both talked about the "feeling" and, more pointedly, the subsequent desire to "have the feeling again."
