The midfielder revived his scoring form, with Batshuayi, Remy and Pedro also on the scoresheet as Antonio Conte’s men continued their pre-season
Mikel’s deflected goal doubled the Blues’ lead after Loic Remy had netted the curtain raiser after a good build up from the Nigerian and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
New signing Michy Batshuayi got a brace after coming on as a half-time substitute against the Austrian minnows with Loic Remy scoring a hat-trick in the friendly played behind-closed-doors.
The goal would serve as a morale booster for Mikel who would be hoping to stake a regular place in Conte’s squad when the new season begins.
Also, he is expected to lead Nigeria U23 team to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games which kicks off next month – as the Dream Team VI face Sweden, Colombia and Japan in the preliminary rounds.
