Chelsea for the first time in the Premier League season had a back-to-back victory as the Blues defeated Norwich 2 – 1 at Carrow Road on Tuesday.

Super Eagles midfielder, John Obi Mikel made a starring role as he came on from the bench in the second half for Oscar in the 60th minute to stiffen the Chelsea defense.

Goals from Kenedy and Diego Costa in the 1st and 45th minutes ensured the London side moved up to 8th place on the EPL log.

Since the coming of Guus Hiddink as manager of the Blues, the team have enjoyed impressive results away from home and could likely qualify for a European competition next season.
