Nemanja Matic believes his stunning strike in Chelsea’s 4-2 win over Tottenham was not the best goal of his career.

‘It was a nice goal! But first of all I want to say I am very happy for the team, that we’re going to play in the final,’ Matic told BBC Sport.

‘Today was hard against a very good team. Congratulations to Spurs, who didn’t give up.

‘I am happy for my goal, it was a great goal, but it’s not the best I’ve ever scored. I scored a harder one in a Benfica vs Porto derby… this is perhaps my second best ever!

‘It’s great when you have a chance to play in this stadium. For our supporters, you can see this is something special. To have a chance to win this trophy is significant for us as players.

‘This result gives us more confidence, of course. it’s always good to win. Now we have to recover quickly for the next game on Tuesday.’
