Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and players celebrate winning the Capital One CupReuters

Chelsea successfully secured their first piece of silverware since winning the Europa League in 2013 following a 2-0 victory over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the final of the Capital One Cup at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

John Terry opened the scoring for the Blues at the stroke of half time before an own goal from Kyle Walker just before the hour mark sealed the game for the Jose Mourinho's side.

Despite their recent elimination from the Europa League following their defeat to Fiorentina in the round of 32 of the competition, the Spurs did not look demoralised as they dominated proceedings in the opening stages of the game.

However, the first real chance of the match fell to Chelsea in the 7th minute as Hugo Lloris was forced to make a good save to keep out Gary Cahill's header following an excellent cross from Branislav Ivanovic.

The Spurs got their first opportunity, three minutes later, after Harry Kane was brought down by Cesc Fabregas just outside the box.

Christian Eriksen stepped up and fired a good effort over the wall and past Petr Cech, but the ball thundered against the post and bounced to safety.

Tottenham, who looked more and more threatening, got another chance in the 35th minute after Danny Rose picked out Eriksen inside the box. The Dane tried his luck from a tight angle but Cech was able to make a comfortable save at his near post.

Finally just as it looked like the first half would be ending goalless, Terry put the Blues ahead in the 44th minute.

Nacer Chadli's foul on Ivanovic saw Willian whip in a good free-kick towards the near post. Nabil Bentaleb tried to clear the ball, but his defensive header fell straight to Terry, who found the nets with a good effort that went in after taking in a thick deflection off Kane.

After the break, Chelsea looked much more comfortable on the ball and Fabregas soon forced an excellent save from Lloris in the 50th minute.

The Blues soon doubled their lead in the 56th minute though an own goal from Walker. Fabregas found Costa with a well weighted pass and the Brazilian charged forward, before firing a low effort that was accidently turned past his own post by Walker.

Mauricio Pochettino brought in Roberto Soldado, Mousa Dembele and Erik Lamela in an attempt to get some foothold in the game

But the Blues maintained their defensive solidarity to safely see out the victory to claim their first piece of silverware under Mourinho's second stint.
