Juan Mata has revealed his 'one-to-eleven' to Sky Sports' Fantasy Football Club - but ended up selecting 15 players, not including Chelsea teammates Eden Hazard and Oscar.

The Spanish playmaker - who selected the best players he has ever played with - did give an honourable mention to the two attacking midfielders, but instead opted for a 5-3-2 formation, leaving no room for the talented duo.

Mata could not separate Petr Cech and Iker Casillas, so included them both, while he also failed to choose between Branislav Ivanovic or Cesar Azpilicueta, Jordi Alba or Ashley Cole and Xavi or Frank Lampard, who were all included.

The 25-year-old, who has often been left frustrated at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Jose Mourinho, did however find places for David Luiz, John Terry, Sergio Ramos, Sergio Busquets and David Villa.

Mata also included Fernando Torres, hailing the striker's mental strength, while the dimintiuve playmaker reserved special praise for Andres Iniesta, who was hailed as the best player he has ever lined up alongside.
