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.

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 warm up for winning bigger prizes with cruise to Capital One Cup

The ESPN FC panel highlight Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho's defensive tactics as being the key elements to his side's victory over Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was delighted to beat Tottenham 2-0 in the League Cup final.

Does it have to be this easy? Did someone not related to the FA disciplinary committee decree that Chelsea's road to English soccer supremacy needed to be one extended two-month lap of honor?

How else to explain why Man City and Tottenham chose the same day to offer Bill Gates-levels of charity toward Chelsea? These were acts of altruism on such a grand scale that you half-expected City and Spurs to offer to pay for Jose Mourinho's cleaning bill after the Delirious One celebrated his team's good...

Jose Mourinho proves once more why he's 'special' with Wembley victory

Basking in the warm reflective glow of a Wembley victory is always a pleasant feeling for Chelsea supporters, especially given the fact that vanquished London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, represented the Blues' opposition in the Capital One Cup Final.

The build up to Sunday's showdown that Chelsea won 2-0 had been frenetic. The questions had been asked: Could the Stamford Bridge outfit cope with hot-shot Hotspur striker Harry Kane? How would they fare without suspended midfield destroyer Nemanja...

Congratulations to Chelsea, the first team to win the League Cup and the Premier League on the same day!

Chelsea have lost three games all season, and it's not a coincidence that Nemanja Matic was absent for two of them. Thus, it must have been with some trepidation that manager Jose Mourinho approached the Capital One Cup final against Tottenham, not least because, in addition to the midfielder's suspension, John Obi Mikel, his other defensive stopper, was sidelined.

Matic is arguably Chelsea's most important player in terms of what is lost when he's not around. Thibaut Courtois has Petr Cech (and...

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...
