The Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has given some advice to the youngsters, like Gael Kakuta, who are expected to be picked for the meaningless match against Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League tonight.
After losing to both Blackburn and Man City, Mikel says the team can’t make it three defeats in a row, no matter who plays.
“We have lost the last two which is not good,” said Mikel. “The manager made it clear on Monday that it’s not good to lose two games in a row so yes, no matter which team is put out, he doesn’t want us to lose, even if the game is meaningless.”
“I think they just have to be themselves, not try to do too much but play the way they have been doing in training,”
“They’ll be fine, they don’t need to impress anyone, just do what they do because that’s why the manager has selected them to play. My only advice is to do what they do in training.”
