Chelsea tops Tottenham in Capital One Cup final

London, England ( - Chelsea scored in either half at Wembley on Sunday to claim a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final.

Spurs nearly grabbed the lead inside the opening 10 minutes when Christian Eriksen curled a superb free kick toward goal, but the crossbar came to Petr Cech's aid to keep the two sides on equal footing.

Tottenham would rue that miss as the Blues went in front just before the break. Spurs failed to clear their lines following a corner kick and John Terry took advantage of some slack defending to hammer a rebound through traffic and past Hugo Lloris.

Chelsea's lead was doubled 11 minutes into the second half when Diego Costa collected a pass to the left side of the box and fired a left-footed shot past Lloris from a tough angle. The shot took a deflection off of Kyle Walker, who was credited with an own goal.

It proved to be more than enough for the Blues, who have not lost a cup final under the guidance of Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea keeps its hopes of a "Treble" alive as the club continues its pursuit of the Premier League title and a Champions League crown.
