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.

Former Blues player Scott Minto was impressed with the midfielder’s ridiculous technique.

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.

Kovacic scored only for the fifth time for Chelsea

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).
