After the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace, Chelsea fans are beginning to see glimpse of hope with 3 games unbeaten ( 2 draws / 1 Win) and seeing some consistency though it is far too early to say Hiddink has fixed the team Mou couldn’t. However, One face that is back into the starting lineup is Mikel Obi who has made good impressions in the last games and the Manager thinks he is the Joker Chelsea needs.
According to Hiddink “Mikel is the ideal player to bring balance to the team. If the team is not willing to defend well, or hasn’t got the right balance, then you’ll concede a lot of goals. “He can recover his radar, he reads the game very well, he knows where the strength of the opponent is and knows how to combat that. He has very good sense, he doesn’t do it in a brutal way, he’s very elegant.
After the Crystal palace victory, Mikel himself charged his teammates to go all the way “keep working hard and keep believing in their quest to end the season on a high he said”
