Premier League: Chelsea Will Finish Among Top Four – Mikel Obi

Kingsley Kanayo

Super Eagles midfielder, Mikel Obi has tipped Chelsea to finish among the top four in the English Premier League, although the club currently lies in the relegation zone.

“We have to win every game now. The top four is still achievable, we can still do it so why not? It is not beyond our reach,” africanFootball.com quoted Mikel as saying on Chelsea website.

“The cups are always important as well. We are still in the Champions League, the FA Cup is going to start very soon so we have to take those very seriously at the same time. But we also want to concentrate on the league because we know we have to push up the table.”

Mikel became the 21st player to make 350 appearances in Chelsea’s 110- year history after coming on as a second-half substitute in the 2-2 draw with Watford on Boxing Day.

“I want to push on and see how many more appearances I can get. For me it has been a great time here.

“I still enjoy it and ever since I walked into this football club, I knew this was the place for me,” he said.
