Twitter erupts in salute of Mikel Obi's 5 star performance against Crystal Palace


Chelsea began 2016 in style with a 3-0 win at Crystal Palace and the Nigerian got the cult Twitter treatment after an imperious performance
It didn't take Chelsea fans long to find themselves a new idol following the loss of Jose Mourinho. Guus Hiddink may have stepped in to save the day, but it is familiar face John Obi Mikel who has become the new darling of Stamford Bridge.

The Nigerian was worshipped on social media by the Blues faithful after a dominant display in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. 'Mikel Mania' trended across the globe with fanciful comparisons to Zinedine Zidane being made and even calls for a statue to be erected in his honour.
Chelsea supporters have had precious little to cheer about all season, so it is with a massive hint of irony that their oft-derided anchorman is providing the most smiles.
Here's a selection of the best 'Mikel Mania' tweets...

@ChelseaFC Why is there no statue of John Obi Mikel outside Stamford Bridge? What is being done to rectify this obvious error?

And on the 7th day, Mikel sat back and screened the defence to allow God to push forward and create more expressively.

John Mikel Obi. The great survivor. Every season we mock him and question his relevance. Every season he becomes more useful. #CFC
