Nemanja Matic injured himself celebrating at Wembley, would have missed West Ham v Chelsea [Tweets]

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho came out with an amusing admission after the 1-0 victory at West Ham on Wednesday evening in the Premier League.

The Blues followed up their Capital One Cup win with a hard fought three points at Upton Park, thanks to a headed Eden Hazard goal.

Nemanja Matic has been a key player for Chelsea this season but missed out due to suspension for the now infamous push on Ashley Barnes in the 1-1 draw with Burnley.

The former Benfica midfielder missed the 2-0 victory over Tottenham on Sunday at Wembley but made it onto the pitch at full-time, in full Chelsea kit, to celebrate.

And, Jose Mourinho admitted that Matic had picked up an ankle injury that would have meant missing tonight’s game.

With Chelsea not involved in the FA Cup or Premier League this weekend, Matic is set to be available for the Champions League second leg versus PSG.

But, will miss the Premier League match against Southampton on March 15, 2015.
