Video: Mikel Obi scores on his 300th appearance for Chelsea
Video: Nigeria Super Eagles midfielder John Mikel Obi was on the score sheet in Chelsea Sunday FA Cup match that saw Chelsea beaten Derby 2-0 that sent them through to the fourth round.
Mikel open the scoring in 66th minutes after unimpressive first half, he headed home from six yards off Willian’s whipped free-kick to break the deadlock.
Having scored all four of his goals for Chelsea – Mourinho – does not see goals in the DNA of the 26-year-old Nigeria international.
“I never recognise (Mikel’s) ability to score goals. I recognise his ability to play as an anchorman, to play that position in a very comfortable way, with no mistakes.
“He reads the game well, plays in an intelligent and safe way, but I never recognise his goalscoring appetite,” Mourinho said to the club’s official website, www.chelseafc.com.
