Chelsea boss AVB defends changing Mata for Lampard

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has defended substituting Juan Mata during their FA Cup draw at Birmingham City.

"First, I would never criticise the fans' reaction, our process of thinking was that we wanted Lamps to arrive in the box, as he does magnificently."
