Mikel and Iheanacho Target Wins Over Stoke City and Aston Villa


Super Eagles duo of John Obi Mikel and Kelechi Iheanacho are hoping to put Stoke City and Aston Villa to the sword in Saturday’s Barclay’s Premier League matches.

Mikel came on from the bench in Chelsea’s 2 – 1 away win over Norwich and is expected to regain his starting shirt against a ‘rugged’ Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.

A win for the Blues would move them a touch distance from making a Champions League spot after a stuttering start of the defense of their title.

Also, Manchester City midfielder, Iheanacho has revealed that he’s hoping to get on the score sheet against Aston Villa in Saturday’s Barclay’s Premier League Match.

Kelechi was the hero of the team as he scored a hat-trick in Man City’s 4 – 0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup last month.

He said that the Citizens are still in the title race and he would love to contribute to the team’s dream.

“It’s definitely one of my favorite performances of the season, scoring three goals and assisting in another,” said Iheanacho to mcfc.co.uk.

“Beating Villa is an absolute must for us now and we then need to back it up with three or four more wins on the bounce. We know we have to get back on track starting on Saturday because there are still plenty of games to go and 33 points to be won,” he added.
