Obi Mikel: Gallagher wouldn't get in my Chelsea team

Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has criticised playmaker Conor Gallagher.

Mikel, who played 372 games for the club after signing as a youngster, is unimpressed by Gallagher's abilities.

The two time Premier League and one time Champions League winner feels Chelsea need better in central midfield.

Speaking via his Obi One podcast: “He's a decent player. Is he a Chelsea midfield player? Starting 11?

“Back in the day when we were playing would Gallagher get into the starting 11? No chance, I don't think so."

The Blues were beaten in the Premier League on Sunday, going down 2-0 at Everton.
