Liverpool legend Dalglish: Only Mata can change Mourinho's mind

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish says only Juan Mata can change the mind of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho about his selection.

Dalglish wrote in the Mirror: "I can understand the unhappiness of those who are mystified by Mata's fall from favour. I don't see anybody else at Chelsea who has the same key that Mata has for unlocking closed doors. But Mourinho seems to have it on his mind that he wants someone more willing to track back than Mata is.

"I'm sure it's hurting the manager that he can't find a place for Mata in the side. It's up to the Spaniard to persuade him he's wrong."
