He is too good


Juan Mata, this baffles me, clearly not just chelsea's best player but also up there as one of the best in the premiership, even in europe for his position, so why, simply why does mourinho not see him as a starter in that team. Yes he has plenty of options there but Mata has to be the first name on the team sheet. 

 

Where should he move to or will he even move?? Opinions

First of all, I wouldn't say he's 'clearly' not Chelseas best player, people might argue Hazard but it's not that clear cut in my opinion. I'd go for Mata from what I saw last season though. 2nd, its 3 games in for Chelsea, it can't really be said that he see's him as a back up player yet in my opinion, whether he's been fit or not, it's a long season.

He is a class player although I don't know about his being the first name on the teamsheet. As a fan, who wouldn't like to have Mata in their squad but I don't believe for a second that Mourinho would let him go, especially not domestically.
I do predict another round of @Baldersmith puns however!

Agree completely that mata is too good to sit, unfortunately because of Mata's lack of defensive intensity he's going to sit. If Jose continues to play Rambo and Lamps together, Mata's not going to feature.

@mrsentah to be fair, of the games so far this season, I wouldn't say he's played wide thaaaat much. The 3 attacking players swap positions so often! I agree in that I would rather see Hazard down the middle predominately though! He's the best player we have IMO.

@mrsentah Yeah Harzard is rarely played in the middle from what I've seen. I've just had a thought. When he was choosing which English club to join wasn't he quoted as saying he'd only join the club who would play him in the middle? hhhmmm

Would love him at Arsenal but can't see him leaving Chelsea, he's one of their best players Mourinho would be mad to sell him

@walshi1987 not over Hazard. I think it's a shame Hazard is playing on the wings he needs to be in the. Middle

They'd be stupid to let him go he was one of, if not their best player last season. I'd start him over Hazard or Oscar anyday.

Mourinho has confirmed he was injured and isn't fit enough yet. He started against Villa mid-week and it was evident he was unfit. These Mata rumours have no substance to them whatsoever. Jose has confirmed several times Mata isn't leaving.
