Mata suffers suspected broken finger

London: Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata has suffered a suspected broken finger in the Champions League defeat to Napoli, adding further woes to the west London side.

The Spaniard collided with defender Salavtore Aronica in the build-up to the game's opening goal and is now a doubt for Saturday's visit of Bolton.

Boss Andre Villas-Boas has already had captain John Terry ruled out for up to two months with a knee injury, so the news of the influential midfielder’s possible absence will be a bitter pill to swallow.

Mata told reporters regarding his finger: "We have to check it. Maybe it is broken."

The defeat in Naples leaves Chelsea's Champions League dream hanging by a thread.

Although, with the Blues having secured a potentially crucial away goal, two goals could see Villas-Boas’ men through to the quarter-finals and Mata is confident his side can pull off the comeback.

"I have confidence in this team, we are not dead. It will not be easy for us but I think we can do it," he told Sky Sports.
