More silverware on way for cup winners Chelsea

CHELSEA enjoyed a perfect Sunday after they cruised to Capital One Cup glory against Tottenham and hardened for the Premier League title after rivals Manchester City were hit by defeat to Liverpool.

The Blues won 2-0 at Wembley thanks to deflected goals from John Terry and Diego Costa and more celebrations are anticipated with Chelsea 1-8 to win the league.

They sit five points clear with a game in hand on defending champions City, who are out to 7-1 with Ladbrokes.

Bet365 are betting on their winning distance and offer 11-4 that they win by ten points or more.

Chelsea are now in with a chance of a stunning treble (League Cup, Premier League and Champions League) with Jose Mourinho’s side rated the most likely English club to achieve anything in Europe. They are 7-1 to win the Champions League.

Spurs, who dominated possession but struggled to put Chelsea under sustained pressure, have crashed out of two trophies this week after Thursday's defeat to Fiorentina in the Europa League.

They are 15-2 to salvage something from their campaign by snatching a Champions League spot.
