London: John Obi Mikel scored his first ever Premier League goal as Chelsea's four-game winless run ended on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Fulham in the Premier League.

After Oscar powered in the opener early in the second half, Mikel sliced the ball into the net in the 84th minute of the west London derby.

The Nigeria midfielder had only previously scored twice for Chelsea, in the FA Cup in January 2007 during Jose Mourinho's first reign as manager.

Mourinho's return has not gone to plan, presiding over the club's worst start to a season since Roman Abramovich's investment started a decade ago. This victory, however unconvincing, enabled Chelsea to dislodge Liverpool from the top of the standings ahead of Sunday's games.
