Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo does not believe the Mark Clattenburg affair had an effect on his side's performance in their 1-1 draw with Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

The Blues have spent the past six days embroiled in the controversy over inappropriate comments referee Clattenburg is alleged to have made to Blues midfielder John Obi Mikel during Sunday's 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.

Victor Moses put Chelsea ahead before Pablo Hernandez's late equaliser and Di Matteo said: "I wouldn't read anything into what has happened in the last week and the result today. It is very difficult to win away from home in the Premier League."
