Chelsea’s Mikel Obi still aiming for top four
Despite their roughest start to a season in a long while, Chelsea’s John Mikel Obi still believes the club can still finish in the top 4.
A 2-2 draw against Watford ensured Chelsea remained in 15th place, but the one-time Super Eagles captain believes they can still make the top 4.
“We have to win every game now. The top four is still achievable, we can still do it so why not? It is not beyond our reach,” Mikel said to the club’s website.
“The cups are always important as well. We are still in the Champions League, the FA Cup is going to start very soon so we have to take those very seriously at the same time. But we also want to concentrate on the league because we know we have to push up the table.”
Mikel made his 350th appearance for The Blues in that match, becoming only the 21st player ever for the club to reach the milestone.
“I want to push on and see how many more appearances I can get. For me it has been a great time here. I still enjoy it and ever since I walked into this football club, I knew this was the place for me,” he said.
