Behind John Terry, John Obi Mikel is Chelsea’s longest serving player.

Since joining the Blues in 2006, Mikel has made nearly 250 league appearances – which signals just how much of an impact he has had over such a long period of time.

This is particularly significant at a club like Chelsea, when you consider how many players and managers have come and gone over the years. Like Terry, Mikel is one of the very few remaining pieces of the puzzle – and he deserves far more credit for that.
