Chelsea fans have seen some stunning long range goals over the past decade. Here, we count down the very best.
1. Nemanja Matic vs Tottenham (FA Cup 2016/17)
The Serb will not be remembered too fondly after moving to rivals Manchester United in the summer of 2017. He was, however, always good for a long range thunderbolt. This missile put Chelsea 4-2 up against Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final.
2. Frank Lampard vs Tottenham (FA Cup 2011/12)
This goal put Chelsea 4-1 up in their semi-final thrashing of Tottenham on their way to FA Cup victory in 2012.
3. Alex vs Arsenal (Premier League, 2010/11)
The Brazilian scored numerous powerful free kicks in his time at Chelsea. This was one of the best as Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.
2. David Luiz vs Basel (Europa League, 2012/13)
In the semi-final of the 2012/13 Europa League, David Luiz sealed Chelsea’s place in that season’s final with this strike. The Blues went on to win the competition.
1. David Luiz vs Fulham (Premier League 2012/13)
The Brazilian takes first prize as well as second. This goal was from so far out that it has to take the biscuit. It set Chelsea on their way to a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage.
