In a game of high drama, thrills and spills, Nemanja Matic scored arguably the pick of the goals in a wild back-and-forth match between Chelsea and Everton in the Premier League.

In the 74th minute, the midfielder shimmied to make a bit of space before his low, powerful drive pinged into the corner of the net. The ball appeared to glance off the shin of an Everton defender, adding insult to injury.

Chelsea ended up running away with the match, 6-3.
