Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard admitted that he did not see Juan Mata’s controversial goal in the FA Cup semi final against Tottenham.

Referee Martin Atkinson gave the goal despite replays indicating the ball did not cross the line – or even touch the goal line.

“I didn’t see it,” the midfielder said.

“Fair enough if we got lucky there, we got lucky. The referee’s given it.

“We didn’t have a conversation about it. We scored a lot of goals and created a lot of chances today and over the course of the game we deserved to win.

“It was an amazing game. I thought we played brilliantly. The first half was tough.

“Didier scored an absolute belter. I think we deserved to win that game with the amount we created. Tottenham are a top side but today we won it well.”

Didier Drogba had given Chelsea the lead before Mata ‘struck’ and although Gareth Bale pulled a goal back, Ramires, Frank Lampard and Florent Malouda sealed the win for the Blues.
