While very little has happened in terms of scoring more goals in the EPL for Mikel, the Nigeria international is still having fond memories of finding the back of the net on that fateful date.
At the moment Mikel has again been relegated to the bench by Blues Coach Antonio Conte who is yet to give the Nigeria captain any playing time in a competitive game since taking over from Jose Mourinho.
