Spurs captain Ledley King doesn't understand how Juan Mata's goal could be given during Sunday's 5-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea.

Tottenham Hotspur captain Ledley King has expressed his confusion over Juan Mata's controversial goal in Sunday's 5-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea.

The Spaniard's shot looked to be clearly in front of the line when it hit a crowd of players at the start of the second half.

However, referee Martin Atkinson judged it to be over the line to put the Blues 2-0 in front.

"I didn't think it crossed the line, I don't see how the referee could have seen it," King told BBC Sport.

Chelsea will now face Liverpool in the final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, May 5.
