Chelsea boss Villas-Boas reluctant to single out Mata for praise

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is reluctant to talk up the form of Juan Mata.

Mata was again impressive in victory over Everton on the weekend.

Villas-Boas refused to single out Mata for special praise, saying: "It's all interrelated with his colleagues.

"The talent in this squad is so immense and the technical staff's job is just to free the players.

"When they play with freedom of choice, they can express themselves a little bit better."
