Juan Mata has said the Premier League is Chelsea's main priority next season, and believes the Blues can win their first title in four years.

Chelsea have been made favourites to lift the crown after the reappointment of Jose Mourinho as manager, and Mata told the club's official website: "Winning the Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League was great - but I really want to win the Premier League title next season.

"If we start well, I think we can do it. We have a great squad and fantastic supporters behind us, so hopefully we can do it.

"For me, it would be amazing to win four trophies in three seasons. It would be a very special feeling to win the Premier League title, and I'm looking forward to hopefully doing so. I think we have the squad. We have enough class to do it."

There has been speculation, however, that Spain international play maker Mata may not be at Stamford Bridge to celebrate any title win, with some reports suggesting Mourinho could sell him in order to strengthen elsewhere.
