Don't expect Juan Mata to be a big part of Chelsea's opening week double. In fact, you should probably steer clear of all these players as they may be given an extended break by their clubs.
The other thing to watch out for in the early weeks is Muslim players who will be in the midst of Ramadan and therefore fasting during the day. Newcastle United will be the likely slow-starters as Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba and Hatem Ben Arfa
may all be affected.
