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...

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.

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."

Chelsea and Spurs battle for season's first trophy in Capital One Cup final

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.

Chelsea and Tottenham will do battle at Wembley this Sunday with the first silverware of the season up for grabs. For Chelsea, it's the first leg of a possible treble, with the Premier League leaders also in the hunt for honours in the Champions League.

In a repeat of the 2008 League Cup final which Spurs won, Mauricio Pochettino's men are vying for the first trophy since then.

It's a London derby at Wembley with more than pride at stake -- a trophy is on the line and Mark Worrall (Chelsea) and...

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.
