Didier Drogba uploaded an inspirational Instagram message after Chelsea's Capital One Cup success over Tottenham Hotspur that was aimed to motivate his team-mates and the club's supporters in their quest for more silverware this season.

The Stamford Bridge hero made a late cameo appearance in Sunday's showpiece final against Spurs that ended with Mauricio Pochettino's side on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline thanks to goals in each half from John Terry and Diego Costa.

Posting after the Wembley win the 36-year-old Ivorian acknowledged the impressive record that has seen him win eight of his ten final appearances with the Blues, whilst also warning that Jose Mourinho's men "won't stop there" as they continue their charge towards the Premier League and Champions League titles.

Pictured alongside fellow Chelsea legends John Terry and Petr Cech, the fans favourite confidently boasted how #WeOwnWembley, before adding a more traditional hashtag that's associated with the west London club #BlueIsTheColour.

After playing in four of the League Cup games and scoring once en route to the final showdown against Tottenham, Drogba deserved to bask in another memorable moment of glory, despite only entering the fray yesterday as a 93rd minute replacement for Costa.

The veteran marksman is approaching the end of his playing contract after only signing a one-year deal following his return to the club upon the expiry of his previous deal at Galatasaray.

There have been suggestions that Drogba will pen an extension at the end of the season, but for now his main focus is clearly on making 2014/15 one of the most successful campaign's in Chelsea history with prestigious trophies there to be won between now and the end of May.

With a five-point advantage over Manchester City - and a game in hand - at the top of the table, the domestic crown is already the Blues to lose, while victory over Paris Saint-Germain at home in the second leg of the Champions League last 16 will ensure the team's progression to the quarter-finals of Europe's elite club competition.

Mourinho will surely be quietly confident of orchestrating a period of unprecedented success in only the second season since his surprise return to Chelsea. And, with the big-game experience of players like Drogba in his squad, the Portuguese coach is well aware he might never have a better chance to triumph.

Chelsea fans: What do you think? Could 2014/15 become your best ever season under Jose Mourinho? Will Sunday's Capital One Cup success help inspire the team for the rest of the campaign? Share your thoughts below...
