After more than six years without a goal, Mikel's first Premier League breakthrough came when he scissor-kicked in a Lampard cross which had been headed down by John Terry - the second goal in a 2-0 success.

Mikel headed in his fourth Chelsea goal on his 300th appearance midway through the second half, the first in a 2-0 win.
