LONDON (AP) With a commanding defensive display and his first-ever cup final goal, evergreen captain John Terry ensured Chelsea would not endure another trophyless season.
The 34-year-old Terry lifted the League Cup at Wembley Stadium following a 2-0 victory over Tottenham almost two years after collecting Chelsea's last silverware in the Europa League. Perhaps more significantly, it gave Jose Mourinho the first trophy of his second spell as Chelsea manager.
Terry and goalkeeper Petr Cech were the only players on the Wembley Stadium pitch who also started the League Cup final a decade ago when Mourinho won his first title in England.
