Premier League leaders Chelsea take on Tottenham in the final of the Capital One Cup on Sunday. Both teams will be desperate to get their hands on the trophy, they have both won four times each. A victory will take the team to second place in the all-time winners list alongside Aston Villa. Liverpool are the team leading the list with eight League Cup trophies to their name.

Jose Mourinho is an experienced campaigner, when it comes to finals, as he has won plenty of trophies along the years in all the leagues that he has managed. He will hope that his team can continue to perform like they have been all season, and take the game to Spurs.

The biggest worry for Chelsea ahead of this game is the absence of Nemanja Matic, who is suspended for the game after being sent off for violent conduct in last weekend's game against Burnley. With John Obi Mikel also sidelined through injury, it will be Ramires lining up alongside Cesc Fabregas in that all important holding midfielder's role.

Meanwhile, Spurs come into this game on the back of a disappointing loss in the Europa League to Fiorentina in Florence. The match was held just over 48 hours before the final. But with Mauricio Pochettino having a fully fit squad at his disposal, he made changes to the lineup, making sure his main stars were well rested for the finals on Sunday.

The manager will have a welcome headache when it comes to picking his starting XI. A few key decisions will be in midfield and in goal. Michel Vorm has started all the Cup games until now, but it is expected that the manager will revert to his regular number one Hugo Lloris for the final.

When it comes to midfield, the number 10 role is the only debate as Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb are expected to fill the holding midfield roles, with Eriksen and Chadli occupying the wings with in-form striker Harry Kane leading the line.

The last time the two teams met in a final was the League Cup final of 2008, the encounter was won by the north London club.

What Managers Say

Jose Mourinho: "It is a final we have to play and a final we have to win. This is the only moment since I arrived in July 2013 that I don't think about the future of this club. I just think about the moment, I just think about this game. We have a final to win on Sunday and nothing else matters."

Mauricio Pochettino: "The players, like on the first day, need to understand that I am the boss. I decide the squad, I decide the starting XI. It is true that it is a final and an important game but the players need to accept my decision."
