Capital One Cup final in pictures: Tottenham heartbroken as Chelsea celebrate victory

Tottenham were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea in the Capital One Cup final today.

Chelsea claimed their first silverware since Jose Mourinho's return to the club with a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One Cup final.

Whilst their pursuit of glory in the Premier League and Champions League are key, claiming a win over London rivals Spurs at Wembley was also a big desire for Blues fans.

After a deflected John Terry goal gave Chelsea the lead in the first half, Mourinho's men made it 2-0 after half-time thanks to a Diego Costa goal - which was again deflected past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris.

Spurs toiled away trying to find a way back into the game, but it wasn't to be their day - especially when Terry made a superb block from a Harry Kane shot.

Reaching a cup final in his first season as Tottenham boss is something Mauricio Pochettino should be proud of, but it didn't make the taste of defeat any less bitter for the Argentine.

Whilst Chelsea celebrated their cup final victory, Pochettino consoled his players at the final whistle after a disappointing afternoon.
