During his pre-match analysis of the game against Tottenham, Newcastle legend Alan Shearer tipped Tottenham to carry the day, but after watching Chelsea show character to win the game 4-2, Shearer is now confident that Chelsea will win the league this season.

“They were content to soak up Spurs’ pressure and possession and, when they went up the other end, they took their chances brilliantly,” Shearer said.

“The Blues scored four goals against the team with the best defensive record in the top flight, so you cannot say they did not deserve their victory.

“And anyone who doubted Chelsea after their defeats by Manchester United and Crystal Palace just had to watch them at Wembley to see how good they are.

“This was a superb display that won a brilliant cup tie and, psychologically, could and probably should pull them across the line in the title race too.”

Chelsea are four points clear at the top of the table and will resume Premier League hostilities on Tuesday against Southampton.
