LONDON (AP) — Chelsea won the League Cup by beating Tottenham 2-0 and had its Premier League title chances boosted by Manchester City’s loss at Liverpool on Sunday, raising the prospect of a second trophy-laden era under Jose Mourinho.
Two deflected shots settled a tight cup final between London rivals at Wembley Stadium, with Chelsea captain John Terry opening the scoring in the 45th with the aid of a ricochet off Eric Dier.
Diego Costa’s attempted shot then span into the net off Kyle Walker’s outstretched leg in the 56th, propelling Mourinho to his first piece of silverware in his second spell at Chelsea.
The Premier League title could also be heading to Stamford Bridge after City lost 2-1 at Anfield to leave Chelsea with a five-point lead and a game in hand.
