The Carling Cup Champion 2007

Chelsea have picked up their first English football silverware of the season after beating Arsenal two-one in the League Cup final in Cardiff.

Unfortunately for the Premier League champions they also lost their captain John Terry early in the second half after he was knocked out cold with a boot to the head. Terry had just made an early comeback from injury. He was taken to hospital in a neck brace but has regained consciousness.

In the extensive injury time played for that incident the two London sides were involved in a brawl and both Wenger and Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho ran on to the pitch to try to separate them. John Obi Mikel of Chelsea and Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor of Arsenal were sent off.

It was a distasteful end to a fine match which until then had been played in good spirit.

There were seven yellow cards in all.

Chelsea's Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba netted the winner in the 84th minute with an unstoppable glancing header.

Drogba also found the net in the 20th after the 17-year-old Theo Walcott scored his first goal for Arsenal in the 12th.

In the Premier League, Wigan beat Newcastle one-nil, Tottenham beat Bolton four-one and Blackburn beat Portsmouth three-nil.
