Juan Mata’s awesome flick between 2 Arsenal players + individual highlights [GIF & Video]
You look through the Chelsea side that played against Arsenal at the Emirates in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night and the strength in depth is frightening.
The likes of David Luiz, Willian, Samuel Eto’o and Kevin De Bruyne would walk into most Premier League sides.
But the crown jewel of Chelsea reserve players (currently) is Juan Mata.
It is almost a sick Jose Mourinho joke how Juan Mata can’t get into the Chelsea first team this season.
Perhaps it is Mourinho’s way of pushing Mata on to greater things? Or, The Special One really does have it in for Spaniards?
But then you remember that Mourinho also has Oscar, Eden Hazard and Andre Schurrle available. Mental.
Either way, against Arsenal, Mata was excellent – with the undoubted highlight (besides a cracking goal) the beautiful back heel flick that took out two Arsenal players in the first half. (See GIF above).
Juan Mata’s individual highlights v Arsenal are on the video below.
