Injuries

Mata Back In Training

Juan Mata returned to training today with Chelsea, on the eve of their Champions League tie with Shakhtar Donetsk. The Spaniard missed Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Swansea with a hamstring injury, along with Brazilian defender, David Luiz. Both were involved in Chelsea’s session today and Roberto Di Matteo remarked in his press conference earlier that the pair will be assessed before he decides on whether they will be included for tomorrow evening’s tie.

“We need to wait for the last session tonight to check the availability for tomorrow and see how they come through tonight in the training session.”

Mata would now seem highly likely to be in the frame for the a return to league action when Chelsea take on Liverpool at the weekend. Indeed, Mata’s Fantasy owners will likely be hoping that the playmaker is handed an extended rest tomorrow evening, to keep him fresh and preserved for Sunday’s encounter.

Mata has been sold by almost 20,000 trigger happy Fantasy Premier League managers this week, having risen from 8.9 to 9.4 since Gameweek 8 following a storming run of form that has seen him fetch four goals and five assists in his previous five league starts.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

      I thought Mata would have been listed in the Fantasy Captain Poll?
