Chelsea: Mourinho's attacking-midfield headache

Jose Mourinho's squad doesn't lack depth anymore in any position.

The Special One has numerous choices when the middle of the season comes and the fixture congestion grows, but the main problem he has is in the attacking-midfielder role.

Mourinho sent Victor Moses on a season-long loan to Liverpool where the Nigerian winger will try to make the most of his time at Anfield and will try to prove a point to Chelsea. Even with his departure, the Blues are still left with a vast array of top quality talent:

Juan Mata - Mata has highlighted himself as one of the best playmakers in the Premier League, maybe the world, over the last two seasons, yet Jose Mourinho opted to leave him out of Chelsea's opening fixtures, and in four games the Spanish maestro has made just one appearance.

The former Valencia man didn't complained about his role at Chelsea though, and said: 'I'm happy I am still here' to Chelsea TV. For now he might be the best choice for Mourinho after playing a crucial part for Roberto Di Matteo, Rafa Benitez and Andre Villas-Boas' sides.

Oscar - The Brazil wonderkid had to take some time to get himself used to the Premier League, but this season the Brazilian has impressed and will be looking forward to keeping his first team place in the team for years to come.

Oscar, much like Mata, can use his great vision and speed to create a chance, his first goal in the Premier League came from a penalty against Aston Villa (23rd December 2012) and this season he scored his first goal in the first game against Hull City.

Eden Hazard - Completing the "Mazacar" section is Eden Hazard, who had a great first season at Chelsea. His first four games won him the man of the match award four times and his form has been crucial for Chelsea's Europa League and Premier League heroics.

Andre Schurrle - Jose Mourinho's first signing, was given the chance to make an immediate impact to the squad due to Juan Mata not being fully recovered from his pre-season injury.

Schurrle hasn't turned many heads as of yet but is looking for brighter appearances at Stamford Bridge.  

Kevin De Bruyne - After impressing on loans to Genk and Werder Bremen, De Bruyne has finally given a chance to show his worth at Stamford Bridge and won the fans over in pre-season after picking up goals and assists.

De Bruyne isn't a first-team favourite by any standards at the moment, but he can become a great player as a back-up, and his first team place doesn't look far away.

Willian - The main reason of Victor Moses' loan deal to Liverpool.

After making his "dream move" to Stamford Bridge Willian will have to be superb to win over the fans who will have paid attention to the massive fee Chelsea paid for his services.
