Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink is gutted to lose 2 – 1 to PSG, but Mikel’s goal is keeping hopes alive.Despite missing key men, John Obi Mikel netted a key away goal to keep Chelsea in the tie going into the second leg of the UEFA Champions League.
Of course, a defeat is never a good or nice feeling, but it’s a two-legged game. Scoring away is always good,” he said after the match.
We reflect on that and on the very good tactical, defensive organisation. We had some danger also. We were not killing in the four or five counters we had. We could have gone a bit further than that.“
But, losing 2-1, we’re still in the race. In two legs it is important to have an away goal. If we can do it at Stamford Bridge then a defeat doesn’t count so much.” Telegraph quoted him as saying.
We had to reshuffle, of course. If you saw us even one week ago, we’d played with Terry and Zouma, so we had to reshuffle. The full-backs have different positions now, but I’m still happy with their performances. Also in central defence.
