Jose Mourinho & Chelsea fans praise Mikel Obi after Walsall display
Chelsea begin the defence of their Capital One Cup with an emphatic 4-1 win away at League one side Walsall.
Super Eagles midfielder John Obi Mikel who welcomed the birth of his twin girls earlier in the week had a great game to the admiration of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and Chelsea fans.
|Mikel and his girls... adorable :)|
After the match Jose Mourinho was asked about the performance of John Terry, but Jose Mourinho was quick to heap praise on his two center midfielders Mikel Obi and Ramires.
‘John was solid, normal, no problem. We brought a good solid defence. The midfield was really good. Mikel and Ramires played amazingly well.'
Jose says Mikel and Ramires played 'amazingly well' in midfield, adding John Terry's performance was impressive. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) September 23, 2015

Who would've thought Jon Obi Mikel would become Oscar 'Mikel' Fabregas as per tonight? #COC #CFC #KTBFFH— Ferry I.S. #KTBFFH (@ferrysadikin) September 23, 2015
I am very worried that Nemanja Matic still hasn't found his form! Maybe Obi Mikel to the rescue. #CFC— Azubike Osumili (@azuosumili) September 23, 2015
Falcao / Rémy aren't worthy of Zinedine Obi Pirlo's passing at the moment.— ChelseaFansChannel (@ChelseaFansYT) September 23, 2015
Zinedine Mikel has been the pick of the bunch so far. Followed by the youngsters and Rami.— ChelseaFansChannel (@ChelseaFansYT) September 23, 2015
Mikel owned the midfield today. Was beginning to wonder if he developed Brazilian skills overnight #CFC— ashanney ibikunle (@ashanney) September 23, 2015
