Matic: We deserved to beat Newcastle.

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has hailed the Blues 5-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday in the Premier League.

It was Chelsea's biggest win in a season that has been terrible for the west London side in terms of performances on the pitch.

'I think we played a good game,' said Matic, Chelsea's official website reports. 'We scored lots of goals, we defended well also and I think we deserved to win 5-1. We also had a couple more chances which we didn’t take, but we are very happy because of the result and we hope to continue like this.

'I think everybody gave 100 per cent and this is the result when everybody takes some responsibility. I think we showed the real Chelsea and we didn’t forget to play football.

'I don’t know if this is our best performance since the manager arrived, it is difficult to say – we also had a couple of other good games. At Arsenal we also played very well, but this one is maybe the best because we scored five goals.

'It’s very important to win and score many goals because when you win like this, the next opponent won’t be scared, but they will be careful how they play against us so this result is very important for our future.'
