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.

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...

HEROES

Diego Costa stole the headlines, but it was John Terry who won the man of the match at Wembley. Harry Kane has caused problems for teams all season, including Chelsea. Terry and an improved Gary Cahill kept him quiet. Terry's perfectly timed late sliding tackle on Kane, executed without fear in his own penalty area, typified his performance. Were it not for off-the-field...

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...
