John Obi Mikel: “Only our best will be good enough tonight”

Tonight Chelsea face a difficult task in turning around a 2-1 deficit against PSG in the Champions League.

John Obi Mikel did the help the side in the first leg with an away goal in the dying stages of the first half to cancel out Ibrahimovic‘s goal scoring free kick only to see Cavani come off the bench to put the French giants back in the lead.

Mikel believes that the Blues can turn it around but they need to be at their very best.

“It will take our best performance of the season to turn this around. The whole team needs to perform if we are to go through. We have to do it together. 

“We attack and defend together. We can’t just look to individuals. They are a very good team but we will find a way to go through.”

A positive for Chelsea is that they play at Stamford Bridge tonight and a 1-0 victory will be good enough to see them through to the quarter finals. Mikel has urged the fans to get behind them and cheer them to the very end.

“We need the supporters to make it as loud as possible. They have been amazing and fantastic to us this season. 

“We have been up and down and they have stuck by us. Whether we have been doing badly or well, they have been there. Their support can help take us through tonight. 

“This is also a chance for us to repay them by getting through to the quarter-finals.”
