Jose Mourinho’s side had a reason to be in good spirits on Saturday as they took the lead after just 50 seconds against the Swans and finished the first half four goals to the good.
But it seems during the celebrations for one of the side’s goals, midfielder Matic got slightly over-excited and appears to punch Fabregas in the face.

What Matic was actually trying to do in this situation (a fist bump?!) is unclear but he clearly lamps Fabregas and the Spaniard doesn’t look best pleased.
The Serbian certainly has a reputation as the hard man of the Premier League, you wouldn’t have thought he would try to emphasise this fact but hitting his own teammates square on the chops.
Could it be that Matic is secretly an Arsenal fan still bitter over Fabregas’ move to West London?
