Juan Mata admits he's having a tough time at Chelsea. Mata was completely dropped from the squad for victory over Fulham.

Boss Jose Mourinho accused the playmaker of not working hard enough, although he is expected to return to face Swindon in the Capital One Cup tomorrow.

Mata, writing a blog on grada360, said: "A million thanks for your messages.

"They are really moving, everything would be more difficult without you guys."
