I didn't say that loki. but the commen sense & logic thing was to play your best player.
the only defence is to give mata a rest. but he could have done that for the cup game at the weekend.
by your logic, its ok for Rodgers to drop suarez for every match against a team that aren't as good as u.
so if he drops suarez against say reading & u don't win.
u think that's fine because your players are still better than readings even without suarez.
of course u blame the players too for under performing.
but that doesn't excuse a dumb decision from the manager to leave out their best player for no good reason!

Never under-estimate your opponent! Make sure you have the key players to get the job done early, and ease off afterwards. The team you pick sends a message to your opponent...and your own team too....its going to be a cake-walk lads... I reckon that tonight Rafa blew his chance to move from interim temporary manager to perminant manager in 90 minutes flat.
I agree with Loki on this.
Sooner or later you have to rest your best players (virtually every manager does). You say he could rest him in the FA cup but you don't know the state on Mata after three games in quick succession. He may have looked knackered in training.
Chelsea without Mata should have been enough to beat QPR at home so you have to look at the performance of the players who were there (and the performance of the manager in preparing those players) in my opinion.
Thank you so much for explaining to me in a dull, monotonous, banal tedious manner how 'my' logic serves me.
If you want to vent about the Chelsea manager, then do it on the Chelsea board instead of boring the pants off everybody here. There was zero point to your thread.
Ps. How do you know Mata is going to play in the FA Cup?
