Obi Mikel delighted for Chelsea pal Eto'o over scoring run

John Obi Mikel is delighted seeing Chelsea teammate Samuel Eto'o amongst the goals.

Eto'o struck twice in their Champions League win over Schalke.

"I think Samuel (Eto'o) is quite different from Fernando (Torres), who is more direct, but he is a fantastic player as well. He knows when to run, when to stay and when to move. His ability with the ball is fantastic," Obi Mikel told

"He worked really hard for his first goal. He does it in training; he's a striker who loves to press, and it's our duty to do that behind him in midfield as well. The second was a well-taken finish past the keeper, and we see that all the time.

"We've got some brilliant strikers and we all knew it was just a matter of time before they started scoring. Samuel is a fantastic player and we all know what he can bring to this Chelsea side."
