John Obi Mikel's Chelsea goals

John Obi Mikel scored his sixth goal in almost 10 years as a Chelsea player against Paris St Germain in the Champions League.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at the midfielder's other five.

January 6, 2007 v Macclesfield

Mikel's first goal for the Blues was the fifth in a 6-1 FA Cup rout at Stamford Bridge.

Forest failed to deal with Frank Lampard's corner and the ball fell to the feet of Mikel who poked home the third goal in a 3-0 win just before half-time.

September 21, 2013 v Fulham

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.

January 5, 2014 v Derby

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

December 10, 2014 v Sporting Lisbon

Cesc Fabregas' inswinging free-kick was flicked on by Gary Cahill for Namanja Matic and Mikel to meet it on the line. The Nigeria midfielder was credited with the final touch as Chelsea claimed a 3-1 home win in the group stages of the Champions League.
