Chelsea faced holders Leicester City in the 1965 League Cup Final, which was contested over two legs. It was the fifth time the competition had been staged, and Chelsea were seeking to become the first London side to win it in their third appearance in the competition.

Match review

The first leg took place on 15 March 1965 at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea twice took the lead in the match, first through Bobby Tambling and then a Terry Venables penalty, but Leicester equalised on both occasions via Colin Appleton and Jimmy Goodfellow. With ten minutes remaining, Chelsea's Eddie McCreadie received the ball on the edge of his own penalty area and went on a sixty yard run, dribbling past several Leicester players before slotting the ball past goalkeeper Gordon Banks, giving Chelsea a 3-2 advantage to take to Filbert Street for the second leg.
