Another player with so much to prove to his club manager.
Mikel has become a maligned figure at Stamford Bridge since Jose Mourinho’s return.
So the 27-year-old will be champing at the bit to prove to the Special One he is still an excellent holding midfielder.
More importantly, he’ll be keen to show other clubs that he’s worth trying to sign once the World Cup has finished.
