Di Matteo: We deserved the win

Published 6 Comments

Manager Roberto Di Matteo admitted Chelsea had enjoyed a slice of luck as a last-gasp goal from substitute Victor Moses gave the Champions League holders a dramatic 3-2 win over Shakhtar Donetsk at Stamford Bridge to keep them on course for the knockout stages.

The Blues were in real danger of seeing their hopes of safe qualification from Group E suffering a severe dent as one-time transfer target Willian struck in each half to cancel out goals from Fernando Torres and Oscar following howlers from Shakhtar goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov before Moses' late strike.

"In terms of the timing of the winning goal, you probably could agree that there was an element of luck. It was basically the last kick of the game," said Di Matteo, who had elected to leave captain John Terry on the bench.
