Mikel in action for Chelsea
Saturday Nov 05, 2016. 19:37
Mikel Obi has yet to make a match day squad for Chelsea after 11 rounds of matches this season to further stir more questions over his future at Stamford Bridge.
The 29-year-old Mikel may be an automatic choice for Nigeria, but at Chelsea he has been surplus to requirements and must now consider his future elsewhere.
He has also not been available for selection in the cup games and his last league game for Chelsea was in May when the London club lost 3-2 at Sunderland.
Only this week, Chelsea shot down speculations the midfielder was to be offered a new contract.
N’golo Kante has fitted in nicely at Chelsea and it now looks very much like the 10-year stint of Mikel has now come to an inglorious end.
While Mikel has been completely shut out at Chelsea, compatriot Victor Moses has enjoyed a new lease of life at The Blues’ and starts again against Everton this evening.
