Chelsea boss Mourinho: Cup final won't influence other targets

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists tomorrow's Capital One Cup final will not have an effect on their other title objectives.

Chelsea meet Tottenham tomorrow at Wembley.

He said: "I don't think about consequences. I don't think that if you win the Cup final, you win the League, or vice versa. I don't feel connections.

"I feel this is the way I want to do it and the players the same - it's a game we have to play, a final. After that, the Capital One Cup is over.

"If you go home with the cup and a medal, perfect. But Monday is another day. Tuesday we have to train. Wednesday we have to play (against West Ham in the League).

"There is no time to think about consequences. It's just a final we have to play and a final we have to win."
