West Ham United winger Matt Taylor admits he's been playing with a broken jaw.

Taylor has revealed he played with a broken jaw against Chelsea on Sunday.

"I have got a small fracture somewhere in my jaw and it is a bit sore now," said Taylor. "But it is just one of those things that will heal and I was given the choice whether I was happy to continue playing with it and I was.

"It is not something that is going to cause me too many problems in the future, providing I don’t go in for any challenges like the one that actually hurt it!

"I ticked all the boxes I needed to in terms of the concussion – that was the big worry for me. It was more a case of whether I felt ready to play and I felt fine. I have had no ill effects from the concussion fortunately, so there was no reason not to be involved."
