Matic ban reduced to two games but still misses final

Chelsea`s Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic had his ban reduced from three games to two on Tuesday which means he will still miss Sunday`s League Cup final against Tottenham at Wembley.

London:Chelsea`s Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic had his ban reduced from three games to two on Tuesday which means he will still miss Sunday`s League Cup final against Tottenham at Wembley.

The 26-year-old was shown a straight red card, for pushing Burnley striker Ashley Barnes to the ground, after a violent challenge that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said "could have ended his career".

The English Football Association (FA) and their independent regulatory commission reduced the ban although Chelsea`s appeal had requested that a suspension be completely overturned.
