Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has declared that Nigeria international Mikel Obi is battle ready for the Sunday’s derby against QPR, but he will start from the bench.
Mikel underwent a successful surgery on his knee and has been declared fully fit and ready to be involved in the Sunday EPL game as Chelsea close in on the EPL title.
“Everybody else is fine and ready,” Mourinho said to the club official website.
“Mikel is ready, Fabregas with a mask is ready too. No problems.”
However, he hinted that the Nigeria midfielder will stay on the bench as he will prefer Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the pack despite both players been a yellow card from ban which may affect them in the games against Arsenal and Manchester United.
“They (Matic and Fabregas) will both start,” he said.
“It’s always the same. We try not to get yellow cards during a match, we try to play football.
“To give an idea, in the last match our opponents made 22 fouls, we made five – it’s been like this for almost the whole season.
“If they have to make a foul for a yellow card – a foul you have to do – they have to do it, but the way we play it’s not easy for our players to be booked.
‘The game is a three-point game. We need points, we need victories and we cannot choose matches. It doesn’t make any sense to think about some matches and not about others.”4years ago My wife left me,because i was too WEAK in bed,but today she calls me Bed Champion.Now i finally discovered a Natural Solution that forces women to ask for more.
