Mateo Kovacic’s goal against Red Bull Salzburg was so good that even teammate Jorginho couldn’t believe it.
Kovacic gave Chelsea the lead in their Champions League group game, with Graham Potter’s side knowing a win would secure a knockout qualification.
It was a goal from nothing with a stray ball finding the midfielder on the edge of the box and he hit it for the first time into the top corner.
As he walked away to celebrate, Jorginho can be seen in the background with his hands on his head.
Shocked how brilliant the goal was and shocked that Kovacic actually got on the scoresheet. It was just his fifth goal for Chelsea in his 197th appearance.
But then Kai Havertz decided to get in on the action and netted a superb goal into the top corner with his left foot to restore Chelsea’s lead after Junior Adamu’s equaliser.
It was so good, it drew gasps and sideways smiles in the form of Mason Mount and Potter.
Former Blues player Scott Minto, however, was impressed with the ridiculous technique displayed by Kovacic for the opening goal.

Speaking on talkSPORT2, he said: “On his left foot with a floating ball, you can’t hit a softer ball than that. What a goal that is.
He added: “He’s a top player, there’s no doubt about that. I actually think he’s the best midfielder at Chelsea right now.
Kovacic is only the second player to score his first five Champions League goals under different managers (Jurcic, Benitez, Zidane, Lampard, Potter), along with Luka Modric (Redknapp, Mourinho, Ancelotti, Benitez, Zidane).
Havertz, meanwhile, scored his first Champions League away goal – disregarding his efforts in the final at a neutral venue.
