John Obi Mikel To Sit Out Maribor Clash John Obi Mikel will not be on parade on Tuesday night when Chelsea lock horns with Maribor in match day three of the UEFA Champions League.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the defensive midfielder has failed to recover from a foot injury, which means he will not be included in the 18 - man squad list for the visit of the Slovenian champions.

The Super Eagles star was an unused substitute last weekend in the 2 - 1 away win over Crystal Palace in the EPL.

John Obi Mikel tasted action for 19 minutes as Chelsea defeated Sporting Lisbon 1 - 0 on September 30, his only appearance in the Champions League this season, having failed to come off the bench against Schalke 04.

The 27 - year - old has made five Premier League appearances in the ongoing campaign.
