After Chelsea’s 5-1 win against Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening Nemanja Matic believes the team gave 100 per cent and that this was the real Chelsea.
The Serbian told Chelsea’s Official website “I think we played a good game. We scored lots of goals, we defended well also and I think we deserved to win 5-1. We also had a couple more chances which we didn’t take, but we are very happy because of the result and we hope to continue like this.
‘I think everybody gave 100 per cent and this is the result when everybody takes some responsibility. I think we showed the real Chelsea and we didn’t forget to play football.
‘I don’t know if this is our best performance since the manager arrived, it is difficult to say – we also had a couple of other good games. At Arsenal we also played very well, but this one is maybe the best because we scored five goals.
‘It’s very important to win and score many goals because when you win like this, the next opponent won’t be scared, but they will be careful how they play against us so this result is very important for our future.’
The defensive midfielder is suspended for the Blues biggest game of the season tomorrow night against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League second round.
