There's been some question -- admittedly not from Chelsea fans -- about whether the Blues will take the upcoming League Cup final seriously. But Jose Mourinho has put any of that talk to rest in his press conference this morning, claiming that this is the first time in his second spell at the Bridge that he's entirely focused on the upcoming match without any thought as to what comes next. The final on Sunday is all that matters.
This is entirely consistent with Mourinho's management style. The League Cup might be the smallest domestic trophy on offer, but it's still a cup final, and Jose will be desperate to introduce his players to silverware for the first time since 2013. Winning is a habit.
Mourinho says he wants to make Wembley somewhere normal for his current group of players where we can go year after year. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 27, 2015
I'm not quite in 'all in' mode for Sunday's match, but I'm close enough that there's barely any room for manoeuvre. Win. This.
