Chelsea may have won one trophy on Sunday, and taken a huge step toward winning another, but the celebrations will be muted according to John Terry.
While the Blues partied and quaffed champagne on the Wembley pitch after beating Tottenham 2-0 to lift the League Cup their captain insisted sights were firmly set only on overcoming the next hurdle in their quest for the Premier League title.
With sole rivals Manchester City losing 2-1 to Liverpool just prior to Chelsea's cup final kick off , Terry agreed that the day had edged them that bit closer to being champions once again.
He said: “I don't think many of the lads knew about the result before – the manager wanted to keep it from us.
“But obviously delighted to see City lose points. It's important now we go again on Wednesday, with another tough London derby (at West Ham), and pick up three points.
“It's kind of – no celebrations, no nothing, back to work tomorrow, and kick-on for Wednesday.”
Chelsea lead the title race by five points, with a game in hand – that being the away trip to bottom of the table Leicester, rescheduled for 29th April.
Manchester City are also in action on Wednesday night as they will host Leicester.
