LONDON (AP) Captain John Terry led Chelsea to its first trophy in two years on Sunday, scoring the opener in a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the League Cup final.

At the heart of Chelsea's defense still at 34, Terry helped to successfully contain Tottenham throughout the first half and then made the scoring breakthrough in the 45th minute when his strike took a slight deflection off defender Eric Dier.

"We handled the game well and the pressure well," said Terry, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
