Chelsea midfielder Mata upbeat after playing return

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata has enjoyed their preseason games in the US.

He has featured against Inter Milan and AC Milan during Chelsea's current tour of the United States, and he is pleased to be back in action.

"Playing against AC was good for me," he said. "The players who were in the Confederations Cup need minutes, and with games like this it's better for us.

"Each manager has his own kind of work, but in terms of intensity the training has been high and I think it's really good to get the intensity into our game."
