Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard praised Juan Mata's performance for their draw at Tottenham.

Mata made a crucial contribution off the substitutes' bench against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday as he helped Chelsea battle back to earn a 1-1 draw in the Premier League.

"He played well, linked the play, put in the ball for the goal," said team-mate Lampard.

"He has been a vital player ever since he came to the cub.

"His attitude has been first class. Every player understands there is a lot of competition, especially in midfield.

"If you are not playing, and we have all been there, you have to stay and train well, keep the right attitude. Juan has done that."
