Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho turns focus to Capital One Cup

27 January 2015

Jose Mourinho has refused to dwell on Chelsea's FA Cup exit to Bradford City as he eyes a Capital One Cup Final appearance at the expense of Liverpool.

Mourinho, who on Monday celebrated his 52nd birthday, labelled last Saturday's loss to Sky Bet League 1 Bradford a "disgrace" and "unacceptable" after the Blues led 2-0 only to fall to a 4-2 defeat.

But Chelsea face Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night with their Capital One Cup Semi-Final poised at 1-1 after the first leg, and Mourinho has quickly turned his focus to that match.

"The next game is the most important one," Mourinho told chelseafc.com.

"We need to forget this one [Bradford] and start the next game in a different competition, and I know we are one victory away from playing a Final.

"It's the good thing about playing consecutive matches without many days in between.

"It's the good thing that, when you lose, you have to focus immediately on the next game.

"You don't have a lot of time to be moaning or analysing what happened in the bad one. Let's move and let's think about the next one.

"At the end of May, beginning of June, we don't go to Wembley to play the FA Cup Final, that's for sure.

"To go there - and I think that should mean a lot to everyone - the last chance we have is this one, to play there in the Capital One Cup Final."
