Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho praised Juan Mata for his performance in victory over Southampton.

Mourinho was particularly pleased with Mata's defensive work on the day.

"It was good, in the second half he gave us what we needed, I needed him to come inside and be a bit of a winger and come inside and connect with the attacking players, he did that well.

"We also needed him to control Luke Shaw because the kid goes forward, and he was also a big support to Ivanovic, so his performance was good."
