Essien makes happy return

Michael Essien scored on his return from long-term injury to give Chelsea a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace in a pre-season friendly at Selhurst Park.

The 27-year-old, forced to sit out Ghana’s 2010 FIFA World Cup™ campaign due to the injury, slotted home on the hour to give Carlo Ancelotti’s side a winning start to their pre-season games.
