Top 10 greatest League Cup finals
2. Tottenham 2-1 Chelsea (2008)
Despite the shock departure of Jose Mourinho earlier that season, Chelsea were still in with a shot of a quadruple; the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.
Tottenham, meanwhile, were struggling under new manager Juande Ramos, but a famous 5-1 semi-final second-leg win over rivals Arsenal had given them renewed hope and Pascal Chimbonda hit the bar early on for Spurs
Chelsea, though, went ahead through a well-hit Didier Drogba free kick, with Paul Robinson badly out of position, becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in League Cup finals with four and giving his side a one-goal lead at half-time.
The game was a tense affair, with Tottenham very much in the contest - Didier Zokora twice missed when in good positions before Wayne Bridge handled inside the area to allow Dimitar Berbatov to roll home a confident penalty and equalise.
The game raced into extra-time after a number of half chances for either side, before a mistake by Petr Cech handed Spurs the lead after just four minutes – the goalkeeper punching a clearance into the face of the defender as the ball rebounded into an empty net.
Spurs held on for the remaining period of extra-time to secure a first piece of silverware since 1999, while Chelsea went on to be knocked out of the FA Cup in lower-league Barnsley in the quarter-finals, lose the Premier League on the final day of the season, and lose the Champions League on penalties after captain John Terry missed a decisive spot-kick.
