Chelsea also won this competition’s final against Spurs in the 2014/15 season.

The Blues, then under the guidance of current Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, won the showpiece final 2-0 thanks to goals from John Terry and Diego Costa.

It was Mourinho’s first trophy in his second spell at the club. Chelsea would also go on to win the Premier League that season.
