Chelsea winger Juan Mata is pleased with his performances in the Premier League since joining the Blues from Valencia last summer.


Mata is also pleased to have many fellow Spanish players in the English top flight and believes that the Premier League is better off because of them. "We play differently," he said. "We propose something different than what people expect from English football, which is very physical and box-to-box. "Spanish football is experiencing a very unique period now with all the trophies, and we are taking advantage of it. "People want Spanish players in foreign leagues, so we are discovering new football and we improve. "A lot of players developed in English football before coming back to Spain, like Cesc Fabregas. He came as a 15-year-old to Arsenal and he has often told me that he owes a lot to English football."
