SWOL at related • 0 views


Juan Mata may have spent the majority of the season so far on the sidelines, but he is expected to feature in Chelsea's midweek Capital One Cup fixture against Swindon Town on Tuesday.

The Blues have been without their back-to-back player of the year for most of the season as new manager Jose Mourinho continues to exact his changes on the side.

Strong Chelsea side travel to Swindon but all eyes on Juan Mata.

As per Jose Mourinho's post match press conference after the victory over Fulham on Saturday, we can pretty much name the Chelsea starting eleven give or take a player or two. I predict that either Gary Cahill or Branislav Ivanovic will start at centre half as the only player tomorrow who has already featured more often than not so far this season.

He replaced another Tottenham legend at the helm, stepping into the void after Ossie Ardilles left to take over at Newcastle.

The Robins were in deep trouble in Division Two at the time, still reeling from a financial scandal which had seen them stripped of promotion to the First Division in 1990 (they admitted 36 charges of breaching league rules, 35 of which pertained to illegal payments made to players).
