Nemanja Matic sombrero-ed Joe Allen & dribbled past 4 Liverpool men in two superb moments for Chelsea
Nemanja Matic had two superb moments of magic in Chelsea’s 2-0 win at Anfield on Sunday.
Matic, who was signed from Benfica in the January transfer window, has made a wonderful start to life at Stamford Bridge in his first half a season in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old Serbian international was picked in Chelsea’s midfield on Sunday against Liverpool, and Matic excelled with two pieces of skill in each half.
In a compact situation where losing the ball could have been critical, Matic coolly lifted the ball over Joe Allen’s head to turn defence into attack for Jose Mourinho’s men.
Then in the second half the Serb went on a mazy move that beat four Liverpool players in one dazzling slalom run.
