WATCH: Chelsea celebrate Ghanaian legend Essien

English Premier League giants Chelsea have remembered Michael Essien on their ‘On This Day’ that marks the club's most historic days.

With Essien having signed for Chelsea exactly on this day, 19 August 2005, from French Ligue 1 side Olympic Lyon on 38 m move, the Blues posted a couple of Essien’s finest moments at the club.

The highlights include an iconic Premier League screamer of 30 yards against Arsenal and of course the stunner he scored against FC Barcelona in a Champions League game.

Essien’s accolades as a Chelsea player included two Premier League titles, three FA Cups as well as the UEFA Champions League.
