John Mikel Obi Happy He Chose Chelsea FC

John Mikel Obi insists he made the right choice to choose Chelsea over Manchester United - and the midfielder now has sights on his first Premier League title.

Mikel, 21, was at the centre of an ugly tug-of-war between the two clubs and was pictured with a United shirt until the matter was resolved, at the cost of around £16million, and he made his Chelsea debut two years ago.

"I love being here - it is a fantastic club with fantastic people and I wish to be here for a very long time. I just have to keep on working hard and see what comes up." said Mikel.

"When I go out there I just want to play well,

"Maybe it turns out every time against Manchester United I play well but I just have to keep it going and make sure I do it in every game.

A 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday preserved Chelsea's six-point lead over United, and Mikel wants to keep their rivals at arms length until the end of the campaign.

"That is what we want to achieve and I will pray we do that," he said.

"The first 10 minutes on Sunday was a bit difficult but after that we calmed down and passed the ball. From then until the end of the game we played much better than them."
