Mikel Obi shines for Chelsea against Bayern
Michael Essien, John Terry, Gary Cahill, and Tiago scored goals as the Chelsea Legends defeated the Bayern Munich Legends 4-0 on Saturday night at Stamford Bridge.
A number of Premier League greats, including Petr Cech, Terry, Cahill, Jon Obi Mikel, and Michael Essien, were part of the strong starting lineup for the Blues.
Gianfranco Zola was also listed as a replacement and demonstrated his still-potent abilities with a magnificent assist.
The match was played in memory of the late Gianluca Vialli, and before the game began, the Blues team posed for a picture next to his recognizable number nine shirt.
A sold-out Stamford Bridge enthusiastically welcomed many familiar faces back to Chelsea as their heroes onto the field once more.
Essien gave the Blues a strong start by latching onto Ramires' cross and heading it in.
Terry was assisted by Malouda, who then slid the ball home and pointed to the sky in front of the Chelsea fans as he scored his unofficial 68th goal for the team.
The Blues went to the halftime break with a comfortable advantage.
When Claude Makelele came off the bench, he quickly won possession of the ball before finding Zola out wide, who then connected with Tiago, who gave the ball to Cahill for the third goal.
A pass from Essien was intercepted by the playmaker, who then chipped the ball over the goalie from a distance of only six yards to complete the scoring.
After a dismal start to the Premier League season, it was a tremendous delight for the Blues faithful to have something to smile about at Stamford Bridge thanks to the event's charitable fundraising efforts.
