Chelsea' Frank Lampard claims that his side deserves to be in the FA Cup final, despite Juan Mata's controversial goal against Spurs.

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has insisted that his side deserved their 5-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final.

The match was notable for Juan Mata's 'ghost' goal to put the Blues 2-0 ahead at Wembley Stadium.

However, Lampard was among the scorers as Chelsea eventually ran riot over their London rivals.

"It was an amazing game, I thought we played brilliantly and we deserved to win with the amount we created," the midfielder told BBC Sport.

When asked about the controversial goal, Lampard claimed that his side were still worthy winners.

"The referee has given it, we didn't have a conversation about it, but over the course of the game we deserved to win," he added.

Roberto Di Matteo's side will take on seven-time winners Liverpool in next month's final.
