John Obi Mikel is yet to be beaten playing for Guus Hiddink at Chelsea.
Mikel has played 19 games across two seasons under Hiddink and never lost – drawing five and winning 14, including the FA Cup final in 2009.
Crystal Palace became his latest victim last week and Scunthorpe – in the FA Cup – could be next.
Chelsea signed Mikel in 2006 and their win percentage rises when he is in the team. With him, it is 61.8%. Without, it drops to 58.1%.
Hiddink says: “He reads the game very well, he knows where the strength of the opponent is and knows how to combat that. He has very good sense, he doesn’t do it in a brutal way, he’s very elegant. Someone who can defend so smoothly is very beautiful.”
