Huge midfielder boost for Blues

Chelsea say midfielder Michael Essien could be back in action in January, a month ahead of schedule.

Essien has been on the sidelines since picking up a knee ligament injury while playing for Ghana back in August but his rehabilitation is going well and Luiz Felipe Scolari says he could be back early in the new year.

The Nigerian has been a big loss for the Blues and having the midfielder back early will be a big boost for Scolari, who is not planning any major moves into the transfer market in January.

"I think he will be back a month earlier than what the doctors said," Scolari revealed.
