John Mikel Obi is delighted at scoring his first Premier League goal for Chelsea in their 2-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.
The 26-year-old preferred to take a collective approach by emphasizing on the team’s ability to get back to winning ways after a poor run of defeats in their last three games.
“We had lost two games in a row and the most important thing to do today was to win, we got the three points and my goal was just a bonus,” Mikel said.
Mikel however admitted his delight at scoring his first league goal after 185 games, disclosing that his teammates had already started teasing him about it.
“I am pretty happy, it has been a long time,” Mikel admitted.
“The guys have been killing me about it. It is good to get my first goal in the Premier League, I have scored in the FA Cup a couple of times.”
