Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi, was both villain and hero in the UEFA Champions League game against hosts Paris Saint Germain (PSG) on Tuesday.

Even though PSG beat Chelsea 2-1, Mikel’s away goal will help Chelsea remain in the race.

PSG’s Ibrahimovic scored the first goal in the 39th minute and it was Mikel Obi’s gaffe that led to the goal.

After Mikel gave away a silly free kick five yards from the penalty area, Ibrahimovic took the free kick and hit the Nigerian, who deflected it into the net.

In the 45th minute, Mikel made up for his mistake by smashing in an equaliser from the six yard box, making it his second ever UEFA Champions League goal in his career.

But it was PSG who laughed last, as Cavani scored the winner in the 78th minute.
