John Obi Mikel is not well-known for his goal scoring attributes, and generally does not venture into many areas of the pitch where he could even threaten to hit the back of the net.
As such, one smart-arsed Chelsea fan was confident enough to claim that he would get the Nigerian’s name tattooed on his rear end should the defensive midfielder hit the back of the net against Derby in the FA Cup.
With Twitter as evidence of the bet, Lee Mitchell will have been devastated as the African enforcer headed home the opener in the west London club’s 2-0 win at the weekend.
Given Fernando Torres’ woeful miss in the clash, maybe Mr Mitchell should have used the Spanish striker instead of the goal-shy Mikel.
