Speaking to the media today, Roberto Di Matteo explained the significance of the League Cup and just how important it can be before our quarter final clash with Liverpool tomorrow night. Back in the day, a certain Jose Mourinho, after winning the title in his first season, explained just how much of a part winning the league cup played in giving the side confidence.

DiMatteo explains how Chelsea have the same outlook this season. He said:
"(In 1998) it gave the team a real belief, a momentum. Then and now are two different situations, but it gave that team a good, positive effect to go on and win the Cup Winners' Cup and finish the season well.

This year we've looked at it as a trophy for us to win. It's a chance to win a cup. It can give a very positive momentum if you win a trophy in that part of the season. It's the first one we can win and we are still in all the competitions, so we have a chance to win them all.

In terms of the manager, winning a trophy is always very important.
Spot on in my opinion. OK, it's the least popular out of the four we are going for this season but it's still a trophy at Wembley to be won.

What better way than to give everyone at the club the genuine belief that we can achieve something here under AVB than if we were to go out, beat Liverpool tomorrow and win the competition!
