Essien regaining form for Champions League final
Ghana midfielder Michael Essien put up an improved performance for Chelsea in their 2-1 win over relegated Blackburn Rovers.
The 29-year-old Ghanaian international has struggled to find anything like his best form since returning from a serious knee injury earlier this season.
But he created the second goal with a powerful run off the right hand flank and into the area before squaring the ball to Meireles who drove a low shot beyond Kean from the edge of the area.
The performance of the midfield engine will be a morale booster ahead of their Uefa Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
With a host of players suspended for the tie, interim boss Roberto Di Matteo will likely throw Essien into the hat at the Allianz Arena on May 19.
Captain John Terry, Raul Meirele, Ramires and Branislav Ivanovic will watch from the stands which means Essien could be used as an emergency centre half. Source: ghanasoccernet.com
