Fans can watch the Chelsea vs. Tottenham match live online and see which team comes out on top in the Capital One Cup final.
The teams kick off Sunday at London’s Wembley Stadium, with the match starting at 4 p.m.
The game will be a rematch of a New Year’s Day match that saw Tottenham beat Chelsea 5-3, but players say that’s all in the past now. Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois doesn’t think that Premier League matchup will have much bearing on Sunday’s final, noting that Chelsea had just beaten the Spurs at home a few weeks before.
“I think the home game, at the beginning they had two or three chances,” he told ESPN FC. “After that we took over and won the match comfortably.”
“There [at White Hart Lane], we took the lead but, after that, forgot to finish the game and they won it 5-3. But now a final is a different game. It’s nothing to do with the league.”
For Chelsea, the Capital One Cup final is a chance to put the focus back on football. As Phil Lythell of ESPN FC notes, the team has endured plenty of controversy in the last few weeks that has overshadowed an otherwise excellent season.
“Considering the recent controversies surrounding Chelsea, it’s easy to forget that they are actually taking part in a major cup final this coming weekend,” Lythell wrote.
He added, “The last couple of weeks have seen some concerning unsavoury incidents involving supporters, inept refereeing performances and the ensuing incomprehensible disciplinary procedures implemented by the Football Association. Sunday’s Capital One Cup final with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley has played the part of footnote to the greater story of the club’s on-field woes and feelings of injustice.”
Fans who watch the Chelsea vs. Tottenham football match live online will see two teams with a lot on their plates. While Chelsea is dealing with controversies, Tottenham is also splitting its focus with the Europa League last-32 match. Midfielder Alberto Aquilani dismissed critics who say the team will be hard-pressed to play in both the Europa League and the Capital One Cup final.
“I think it’s absurd to believe that someone may play one game while thinking about another one,” he said. “They’ll come here to win, and they will play with the highest levels of concentration, and we’re ready for them. The game is going to be very difficult. They will come here to win in spite of our initial advantage.”
