Juan Mata praises the influence of fellow attacking midfielders Oscar and Eden Hazard at Chelsea this season.

Juan Mata has claimed that the form of Oscar and Eden Hazard has dictated the way Chelsea have played this season.

The trio of attacking midfielders have been key in the Champions League winners' impressive beginning to the season and Mata believes that Roberto Di Matteo has got the best out of the club's attacking players.

"We are really enjoying it. We are trying to play good football and, for me, it is the best way to win," the Spaniard told reporters. "We are just trying to take advantage of our qualities offensively and defensively, and it's the best way to win games.

"Every team has to play with the players they have. Now we have Oscar and Hazard who play really well with the ball. They are able to keep the ball and to assist, and for us it is very good to play like this – this is how I prefer it."

Chelsea host Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
