Stoke City fans have lauded John Mikel Obi after the veteran midfielder impressed on his league debut against Millwall last Saturday.
Mikel, 33, slotted well into the holding midfield role in the 0-0 draw at the Den.
The former Chelsea star had an 89 per cent pass completion rate in the game.
He also did a good job in starting counter attacks as well as shielding the defence.
The fans took to their social media to show their love for the Nigerian.
Derren Jones: A class above… It’s what you need in the Championship. That someone special to give you the edge.
Danny Penfold: The glue that sticks it all together.Once up and running we will finally stop getting overrun in midfield.

Steve Tipping: Massive get. Him and Joe Allen back, that’s a quality central midfield.
Stephen Pritchard: He’s got the quality to get us promoted.
Neil Price: He’s gonna be a big player no doubt.
Derek Cartwright: I think once Allen returns these two in midfield are going to be a force.
Liam Clarkson: Half decent, lost some key touches in the middle. Hopefully as the season goes on they will disappear. Solid.
