WATCH: Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic on Wembley wonder goal: Not my best!

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is floating after his wonder goal in victory over Tottenham in their FA Cup semifinal.

The midfielder's hit from 25 yards ensured Chelsea's spot in the FA Cup final but he claims to have scored a better goal during his time at Benfica

Matic said: "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.

“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 v Porto derby... this is perhaps my second best ever!"

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Tuesday against Southampton and Matic believes this win gives them momentum.

He said: “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."
