Nemanja Matic is not known for his goalscoring exploits.
He usually leaves that to the likes of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa while he dominates the midfield.
But his wonderstrike has given Chelsea hope in their Premier League match against Everton this afternoon, bringing the champions back to 2-1 at half time after a Steven Naismith double.
Naismith was not even selected to start by Roberto Martinez at Goodison Park, but an early injury to Muhamed Besic gave him an opportunity to make an impact off the bench.
And he did just that, scoring twice in the space of five minutes to reopen the defensive wounds that were exposed when Chelsea lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace prior to the international break.
The Scotland international smartly turned Matic on the edge of the box before continuing his run to meet a Brendan Galloway cross from the left with a thumping header on 17 minutes.
He had doubled Everton’s lead soon after, taking advantage of the space afforded to him by Branislav Ivanovic to fire a left-footed shot into the bottom corner past Asmir Begovic.
But Matic, who had previously scored just one goal in 57 Premier League games – a header – unleashed the below thunderbolt out of nowhere to reduce Chelsea’s deficit before the break.
