Essien is back to playing after that injury he suffered during the first practice under AVB. Well he's not fully recovered but he's almost there, seeing as he played 75 minutes in the Chelsea Reserve's match vs. Westbrom. It seems that he played well but still they lost 3-2.
Now on to the important question if Essien regains form, how would we play our midfield? Oriol has been excellent, Ramires is doing great, Lampard and Meireles have their ups and downs but who do you think should start? Where does that leave Juan Mata who wants to play centrally? What is you're opinion?
