Nemanja Matic’s first goal of the season might have come very late in the season but it was definitely a goal worth the wait.
With Chelsea leading Spurs 3-2, Matic struck a shot that left Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris rooted to the spot.
Was the goal against Tottenham his best in his career? Matic thinks that honour goes to his volley against Porto when he was a Benfica player but this goal was definitely is best goal in a Chelsea jersey.
Matic revealed he knew it was going in when once he struck it.
“I thought then that it was a goal,” Matic said.
“But the most important is that we won the game. But I am happy for my goal, it was a nice goal.
“I am very happy for the team because we are going to play a final.
“This game was so hard against a very good team. Spurs to the end they didn’t give up.
“They are a great team and that is why we are happy.”
