Super Eagles Captain Mikel Obi is keen to impress new manager Antonio Conte as he scored in Chelsea’s 8-0 whitewash of Atus Ferlach in a closed-door friendly last night.
The 28-year-old played just five minutes in last friendly when he came on for Nemanja Matic as the Blues cruised to their first pre-season win against WAC Sankt Andra.
In a bid to play himself back to reckoning the Nigerian put in a powerful display as he shielded the backline from conceding a goal and at the other end scored a sweet goal.
Also, making a mark in the friendly was new Chelsea signing Michy Batshuayi who grabbed a brace while last season’s forgotten star Loic Remy scored a hat-trick to draw the attention of the manager of his relevance.
Chelsea’s rout was completed by a brace from Spanish international Pedro was helped himself to a brace as Chelsea ran out 8-0 winners in a show of absolute dominance.
Chelsea will continue their pre-season preparations, with International Champions Cup games against Liverpool, Real Madrid and AC Milan.
