He side-stepped Alex’s challenge superbly and as the Lane appeared to collectively hold its breath, struck a firm shot that Carlo Cudicini somehow, brilliantly, managed to turn aside down to his right.
The scoreline remained at 4-4 and the game is already seen as one of the classics.

“It was a great feeling when Robbie’s goal went in but then my heart was in my mouth when Berba went through in the last minute,” admitted Tom, who played such a huge role in the match himself after coming on in the second half. “But somehow Cudicini got his hand to it even though he was diving the wrong way.
“You’d put your mortgage on Berba to score one on one but it was a great save from a great keeper.”
Tom certainly played his part with a wonderful strike for our third goal as we came back from 3-1 down only to then go 4-3 behind before the final flurry.
He added: “We’ve shown our character again and it’s not the first time this season. It was a massive game for Chelsea to keep them in touch with the title race and for us we wanted to bounce back from the disappointment of losing at Manchester City. I think we did that in good fashion, we showed our spirit.”
