Laying Vinyl Tiles on Chipboard floor

Just purchased some Vinyl tiles to be laid onto chipboard floor in bathroom.

We previously had vinyl tiles on same floor in same bathroom and prior to laying we used pva (1 part to 5 parts water) to seal the chipboard floor.

Having now removed the existing Vinyl tiles by simply lifting these off the floor, it has left behind a glue adhesive. Do we need to reseal the floor using pva (1 part to 5 parts water again) or can we simply lay the new tiles straight away?
