Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says there is a place for Juan Mata in his team, if "he adapts to my way of thinking".

Mata played at Swindon, tasked with showing a willingness to track back which means he comes into contention.

"The last (Premier League) match against Fulham he was not selected," Mourinho said.

"If he keeps working that way (like at Swindon), adapting to my way of thinking, the football I want the team to play, the natural tendency is the opposite one, to be in the team."
