"It was good and for us it was all about getting back to our fitness but at the same time it was an important game," Mikel told chelseafc.com.
"We wanted to win this trophy, the manager really wanted us to win it too, and we went out and did what we had to do.
"We played well and we stuck well to our plan we had before the game. We wanted to go out there and put pressure on and score an early goal. Then we could take control of the game which is what we did. We kept playing and we knew that the second goal was going to come. Then we just had to keep the ball."
