Chelsea win League Cup

The Blues profited from two deflections to come out on top in an unexciting League Cup final, with John Terry grabbing the opener and a Kyle Walker own goal sealing it

Chelsea lifted the League Cup after a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in an unexciting final at Wembley.

John Terry gave Jose Mourinho’s men the lead just before half-time when Spurs’ poor defence of a free kick gave him the time and space to fire home via a deflection.

And the Blues cushioned that advantage soon after half-time when Diego Costa’s finish was diverted in by Kyle Walker for an own goal.

Tottenham struggled to create genuine chances to get back into the game and the final drifted towards its conclusion as the Premier League leaders secured their first trophy of the season.
