The Premier League leaders have until 1pm Tuesday to submit their evidence to the FA.
As it stands Matic will be in the stands for Sunday's Capital One Cup final against Tottenham, as well as the league matches against West Ham and Southampton.
The Serbian midfielder, who began his second spell at the club in January last year, was shown red for pushing Ashley Barnes to the ground after being fouled by the Burnley forward.
Jose Mourinho was quick to jump to his players defence branding the tackle as “criminal” and insisting Matic was lucky not to be seriously injured .
“It could be the end of Matic's career,"said Mourinho. "He is a very lucky guy
"Football is about emotions and clearly Nemanja Matic had a reason to lose his emotions.
"What are the consequences of his push? Nothing. The consequence for Matic from the tackle? It could be the end of his career."
Matic has been a mainstay in the Chelsea XI this season featuring in 25 of Chelsea's 26 Premier League games this season, and making 37 appearances in all competitions.
Mourinho will be eager to get his star defensive midfielder into his side for the weekends cup final, especially since his side have only recorded a 66% win rate in the games Matic hasn't played this season.
However, if the FA deem his ban to be frivolous they could increase it further.
