John Mikel Obi put up another fine performance as Stoke City recorded an impressive 3-0 victory over Premier League outfit Leeds United in a friendly game on Tuesday.

Mikel, who took over the armband from injured Ryan Shawcross after seven minute established himself as a calm presence in a well-marshalled and disciplined five-man midfield until his own substitution on 65 minutes due to match sharpness.

Mikel has now featured in two friendlies since linking up with the Potters on a free transfer last month.
