Mikel scores in Chelsea loss to PSG

17 February 2016, 08:51Israel Ojoko

Paris - John Obi Mikel capitalized on PSG’s defensive error to draw level for Chelsea in the 45th minute of action after he has deflected in a Zlatan Ibrahimovic free kick six minutes earlier in the first leg UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

Edinson Cavani scored the winner for PSG with 12 minutes to regulation time.

Mikel has made his career at Chelsea shutting down games, keeping the ball, making sure that no goals are scored. That is why so many Chelsea managers have used him over his surprisingly long Stamford Bridge career.

So his was a rather unusual contribution last night, as he made goals at both ends during a hectic spell at the end of the first half.

Mikel could not have been more obliging with Paris Saint-Germain’s opener. First he gave away a free-kick by tripping Lucas Moura as he ran towards goal. When Zlatan Ibrahimovic took it, Mikel, standing on the edge of the wall, mindlessly turned his back and deflected the ball past Thibaut Courtois off his heel.

But this was an unusual night, and six minutes later Mikel scored his sixth goal in more than a decade at the Bridge, hacking a loose ball into the net after Diego Costa flicked on a corner.

He may not score again for some time.
