Mata likely to be in Chelsea Starting XI vs Everton

Mata likely to be in Chelsea Starting XI vs EvertonChelsea will face Roberto Martinez’s new looking Everton side in the premier league and Mourinho’s men will look to return to winning ways after international break.

The blues have not yet been really convincing despite having a top quality side but in time they can be a major force.

One complex scenario surrounding Stamford Bridge is that of star player Juan Mata. Last year’s player of the year for Blues, now suddenly a bench warmer.

However, it is likely that Mata will be in the Chelsea Starting XI vs Everton.

Belgian international Hazard is now fit to play for the Blues after injury scare on international duty but Mourinho is expected to not risk him straight in the starting lineup.

On the other hand, new signing Willian is mainly a central attacking midfielder that is mainly occupied by his compatriot Oscar.

Former Anzhi man is expected to get his debut against Toffees but that may as well come from the bench.

Mata having the ability of playing at both flanks and centrally should be the ideal replacement in the absence of Hazard.

The word ‘Replacement’ sounds strange as he is by no means inferior in quality to Hazard. The rest all depends on Mourinho.
