(Video): Mateo Kovacic’s sweet volley gets Chelsea back in the game

Chelsea are back in this!

Mateo Kovacic hadn’t scored since January 2017, and now he’s got two in a month! After a good overlap from Azpi from the left, the ball was cleared to the midfielder, and he made no mistake, scoring a goal eerily similar to the one he hit against Valencia to end his long drought.

The Croatian struck a sweet volley from outside the box to make it 2-1. There’s still a long way to go in this one, and we should be aiming to take back at least a point if we keep up the pressure.
