Juan Mata says he is enjoying playing alongside Chelsea new-boys Eden Hazard and Oscar this season and is convinced the Blues are gradually adapting their style of play to be more attacking.

Mata, Hazard and Oscar started together for the first time during Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

And Mata, who enjoyed a brief rest during the international break after a hectic summer for the Spaniard, feels the three playmakers will help Chelsea add more flair to their forward play.

“I feel very well now, I had a break for the last two weeks and now I am ready to play,” Mata told Chelsea’s website.

“Hazard is a special player, he can change games with his quality and I like to play with Oscar because he likes to pass and move and always gives you a chance to pass the ball.

“I enjoy playing with them both and all the players who came this summer are top players. For sure they will help us and we can play in a different way to last year.”
