Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was snubbed by Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert when the Portuguese tried to shake the Irishman's hand before the full time whistle.

With the Blues already leading 3-0 against Villa, the "Special One" decided to head into the Stamford Bridge tunnel a little early. However, before doing so he went to the Villa dugout to shake Lambert and his assistant manager Roy Keane's hands.

Lambert instead if accepting the handshake, pointed at his watch to indicate that the match was still not over. Meanwhile, former Manchester United midfielder Keane simply ignored him.

Here is a Vine video of the incident:

However, Mourinho, who was expected to say something on the matter after the game, did not seem very concerned about the handshake snub as he did not bring it up during the post match conference.

The Blues initially struggled to break down Villa's defence after Oscar got them to a flying start by breaking the deadlock after only seven minutes. But after the break, Chelsea put the game to bed by adding two further goals through Diego Costa and Willian.

And Mourinho, who was impressed with the team's overall performances against Villa, spoke about how Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas did brilliantly to stop Villa from counter-attacking.

"They [Matic and Fabregas] were fantastic in the way they moved the ball and their position when we didn't have the ball," he told Chelsea's official website.

"They were always in a good position to try to stop Villa counter-attacking, because we know they have good fast players on the counter-attack, so the team played really well."

The former Real Madrid boss added that Matic and Fabregas gave the team a "good balance" against Villa.

"Villa have won two matches away from home, scoring one goal [in each]. If you want to win you have to have the ball but at the same time prevent the counter-attack from happening, keep a balance in the team. The way we positioned Matic and Fabregas we gave the team a good balance."
