Saturday evening's FA Cup semi-final between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea at Wembley lived up to all expectations. The tie, which at times resembled a game of 'Pong' on an Atari console, possessed many ebbs and flows, and left the die-hard supporters of the two clubs - and the neutral, of course - gripped to the edge of their seats.
Spurs failed to capitalise upon a Blues squad which lacked the ingenuity of both Diego Costa and Eden Hazard in the starting lineup, and despite landing a few blows of their own, they subsequently lost the enthralling clash 4-2 against Antonio Conte's men.
Via Give Me Sport and Twitter, the moment Nemanja Matic emphatically gave Chelsea their fourth goal has been underlined forever, with a dispirited Spurs fan uttering the words: ''Shall we go home?'' to some hilarious effect.
Back to the goal itself, and Matic strode onto the ball after it was played back into the Serb's path by the illusive Hazard, a second half substitute no less.
The resulting strike was simply incredible to watch, although it was also evidently crushing for the aforementioned Tottenham fan, who may have found the funny side - amongst the somewhat humiliating - of his team's capitulation...

The whirlwind showdown at England's home of football escalated rather quickly, and it's not surprising that this Tottenham fan could have possibly done with a premature lie-down on the sofa.
Spurs are currently tailing Chelsea by just four points in the Premier League, and some will certainly feel Chelsea have dealt their only title rivals a rather significant psycholgical blow in the title race following Saturday's result.
However Mauricio Pochettino, speaking in an interview via Evening Standard, suggests that the deflating loss will not hamper his side's concentration, as they aim to hunt down Conte's team: "It's not important - we will move on," he said.
"The players are disappointed but tomorrow we will work again on the training ground and focus on the next game and the Premier League.
"Sometimes you play well and don't win and now we must only be a little disappointed The gap is four points and we will try to catch up.”
