League Cup final

Goal!

The League Cup final has been a fixture on the football calendar since the 1960-61 season. This year's final will take place on Sunday 1 March, at the home of football in England - Wembley Stadium.

Both teams in this year's final tied one of their semi-final matches, meaning both go through on aggregate. Tottenham beat Sheffield United 3-2 on aggregate while Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-1 on aggregate.

Despite the 2014 League Cup final being Sunderland's first appearance in a Football League Cup Final since 1985, they were not able to capitalise on the opportunity and Manchester City beat them 2-1 taking last year's cup.
