Chelsea manager has heaped plaudits on Nigeria international, Mikel Obi following his sterling display in the Blues’ 3-0 away win against Crystal Palace on Sunday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Mikel who was praised for his impressive performance against Manchester United on Monday was in fine form once again against Palace in the English Premier League fixture.
He started his third consecutive game under caretaker boss Guus Hiddink, this time pairing Cesc Fabregas in central midfield.
And the Dutch tactician was full of praise for the former Lyn Oslo of Norway star after the game.
“Mikel played very well, he’s the ideal player to bring balance to the team,” Hiddink told the club’s official website after the game.
“He knows the game very well and how to cope.”
