I’m a little late to the party but I couldn’t not write about Chelsea winning the League Cup yesterday, now known as the Capital One Cup. We beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Wembley Stadium in a game which was much more pleasant than our last outing against them on New Year’s Day. Goals from John Terry and Diego Costa (or perhaps a Spurs own goal) on either side of half-time coupled with a solid defensive performance proved more than enough in the end – including centerback Zurt Zouma filling in for Nemanja Matic in defensive midfield.
Not much more to say about this other than it feels great to finally win another trophy. It’s been nearly two years since we won the Europa League and for Chelsea that feels like an eternity. Barring a major collapse this should be the first of at least two trophies as we are comfortably atop the league right now, which will be a much sweeter trophy if and when it arrives.
