After Chelsea beat Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final, captain and long-serving defender John Terry believes finally adding to the trophy cabinet could see the Londoners begin a period of success under manager Jose Mourinho, reports Sky
Mourinho had suffered a three-year drought in winning trophies prior to the final, but Chelsea rarely looked in doubt against Tottenham at Wembley. Despite their London rivals edging the first-half, the Blues found themselves ahead at the break, courtesy of a deflected John Terry goal.
In the second-half, the Blues doubled their lead through Diego Costa, whose crossed deflected in off Kyle Walker. Chelsea saw the game out and won the Capital One Cup, which could well be the first of three trophies, given how well they’ve done in the Premier League title race, and how they’re still in with a shout in the Champions League.
Goalscorer John Terry believes Mourinho finally ending his drought could now see more success coming to Stamford Bridge, especially this season. Chelsea have plenty more of the season still to play for, but they are currently on course for dominance in two of the three domestic competitions.
“That’s the first trophy, it’s massive. It meant an awful lot to us (to win the League Cup) in 2004-05 in Jose’s first year here. It could be the start of something very good but we have to kick on and we have the league to focus on, but it’s a great day and a great win today.
