Mikel warns PSG ahead of Champions League clash

16 February 2016, 18:51 Israel Ojoko

Paris - Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has warned PSG to be warry of striker Diego Costa ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash on Tuesday.

Costa, who struggled in the early stage of the Premier League this season, has now fired seven goals since Hiddink replaced Mourinho in December.

“Diego is back to his best. But I think he is playing better than last season when he was in that fine run at the start and scoring loads of goals. At this stage of the season, he is more relaxed. The manager, Guus Hiddink, is handling him superbly,” Mikel told Standard Sport.

“He got into his head very well, slowly but surely.

“He is getting the best out of him and is exactly what Diego needs. He looks fast, he is fitter and is scoring goals.

“He is playing well, the fight is back in his attitude. He wants to win games and is exactly what we need to beat PSG.

“As they are the home team, I am sure they will look to attack us, but hopefully that will allow space for Diego to run in behind them.”

PSG boast a number of internationals including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Moura, Angel Di Maria and former Chelsea defender David Luiz.

They are 24 points clear in Ligue 1 and haven’t been beaten at home for 10 months. But Mikel insisted: “We won’t have any fear. They have a lot of big, good and experienced players in the team, but we do, too.
