Jose Mourinho has admitted that he can be found guilty of being unfair to his players, as all of them deserve to play on match days, according to the Metro.

The Special One praised the overall attitude of his entire squad and conceded that it was becoming increasingly difficult for him to determine his match-day selection, as all of his stars were performing to their utmost capabilities.

"It’s not easy for me to leave some players at home or on the bench, because I think everybody deserves to play," said the Blues boss.

The controversial Chelsea coach then went on to say that he was enjoying the vast wealth of talent at his disposal, but it did mean that he had to be unfair on some players and leave them out of the squad despite them impressing him in training.

"To have all these choices is a good problem. To have all the players playing well and be very much committed with the group is fantastic," Mourinho said.

"But to be the man responsible to say you are not selected at this moment is very hard because I feel I am unfair with all of them because they are doing everything to play.

"They cannot do anything else from what they are doing. In this moment my players, all of them, they have a collective soul."

Chelsea's next game is a crunch match against Newcastle in the early kick-off on Saturday. Mourinho will know that a win will take them temporarily to the top of the table, with Arsenal and Liverpool set to play later in the day.

It remains to be seen exactly who will make the cut for the Blues squad this week, with the so called 'second-string' side having impressed greatly in the mid-week victory over the Gunners in the Capital One Cup.
