We compile the best reaction from Blues fans to Matic's display against Stoke City last night.
The Blues picked up a 2-0 win at the Britannia Stadium and rarely looked threatened after taking an early lead through a John Terry header due to Matic's brilliance.
The Serbian was imperious and impenetrable in the heart of their midfield, as he thwarted numerous Stoke attacks.
Destructive yet graceful, Matic showcased his ability during the fixture and the Chelsea fans lauded his performance after the match.
The powerful central-midfielder is never likely to make headlines through his displays, but his role for the side is arguably more important than any other in the Blues system.
It is no coincidence that the only game Chelsea have lost this season was one where Matic was missing and he is currently the first name of their team-sheet.

The former Benfica man made six tackles, two interceptions and won two headers against a typically imposing Stoke side.
It was a performance which enabled his side to dictate the pace of the match and allowed the more creative players in the Blues' squad to shine.
The win meant Chelsea consolidated their position at the top of the Premier League table and nobody will be more vital to their bid to win the title than Matic.
Here is the best reaction from Chelsea fans on social media site Twitter to Matic's performance.
An important takeaway from last night - the Mikel-Matic pivot could be Jose's favoured midfield going into the latter stages of the CL #CFC— Raghuram Cadambi (@raghuramcadambi) December 23, 2014
