Chelsea boss Mourinho completely axes Luiz, Mata for Fulham win

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho dropped Juan Mata and David Luiz from his squad for their 2-0 win over Fulham.

The pair trained in the morning and will feature at Swindon in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

Mourinho said: "I hope he tells me on the pitch 'you are wrong, I'm the best and I have to play every game'.

"I would love that. I'm waiting for a professional reaction. I want him to be fantastic. I hope he can.

"I gave Juan the chance to play from the beginning against Aston Villa, from the beginning against Everton, 30, 35 minutes against Basle.

"The past is the past, what matters is now. You have to be judged for what you do now.

"I have my options, but the thing that I most love in football is when the players prove that I'm wrong."
