Nemanja Matic dodged injury at the feet of Ashley Barnes’ horror tackle, but he couldn’t escape the turf at Wembley.

Did we mention he wasn’t playing?

Chelsea’s midfielder earned several laughs at his expense when Jose Mourinho revealed that Matic was injured in the Blues’ League Cup celebration on Sunday.

Matic did the John Terry, and dressed up in full kit despite being unable to participate in the 2-0 defeat of Tottenham. Sky Sports thinks it happened here, where a team-wide celebratory slide went awry, and down goes Matic (Additionally, he dropped his scarf and took out Didier Drogba).
