Mikel to miss Chelsea finale

LONDON - Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel will miss the Premier League season finale and FA Cup final against Portsmouth after having minor knee surgery.

The 23-year-old Nigerian international was injured in the match against Bolton Wanderers last month, the club said on their website on Thursday.

Leaders Chelsea could be chasing a Double against Portsmouth at Wembley on May 15 if they beat Wigan Athletic and secure the league title on Sunday.
