Where were you when Mikel score the goal?

Match Notes:

  • So it’s confirmed that Oscar is Mou’s no. 10. Juan Mata will have to fight for his place and that is the right wing as indicated by Mourinho initially. For 2 seasons, we loved the little spaniard, so it is disappointing, but let’s see how it plays out..
  • Mikel-Rami pivot started. They seemed to lack passing quality. Whole of the team was still lacking rhythm.
  • Enjoy Mou’s view on Juan Mata, his vision for the Chelsea’s attacking philosophy and his reply to Jamie’s Redknapp criticism of Mou below.
  • Eto’o had another disappointing game. He was largely anonymous. Torres introduction made Chelsea look better. I hope he starts against Swindon on tuesday.
  • Mourinho on Mata: ‘He will be playing from the beginning against Swindon. I hope he tells me I have been wrong on the pitch
  • Oscar won 6 tackles against Fulham, more than any other player in either Chelsea or Fulham’s side. An unexpected grafter!
