Juan Mata over the break participated in the Euros and had an early exit in the Olympics that have brought him back to Stamford Bridge a tired man.
He may not have played much at Euros and did have an early exit from the Olympics but it still means he did not have a proper rest at all over the break. I know it may seem knee-jerk after 2 games but he does look tired on the pitch to me and just seems to be missing that cutting edge. I feel that we have enough cover(especially if Moses is brought in) that we could afford him a few weeks holiday just to ensure that he is refreshed and ready for a long season. Assuming Hazard moves central we could easily have Bertrand, Sturridge, Oscar filling his role in the team enough so that we can get by without him for a few games.
Well that's 150 words, what are your thoughts, do you think he is sluggish/tired or is he good to continue?
