Michael Essien spent nearly a decade at West London club Chelsea where he has a lot of nostalgic memories of the team.

According to the former Ghana International, his best goal for the club is the equalizer against London rivals Arsenal on December 10, 2006.

The versatile Essien who was dominant for Chelsea during his nine-year stay in London scored 25 career goals for the Blues and he has singled out the stunner in the game with Arsenal as his all time greatest.

“Obviously, people always ask me about my best goal at Chelsea and I say the one against Arsenal although the Barcelona goal was also great. Arsenal are our greatest rivals so scoring a goal like that against them you have to put it on top.” Essien told Chelsea TV

“It was a difficult game for us, we were losing 1-0, Ashley Cole retrieved the ball from the back and found Lampard. I just asked for the ball from him and without thinking twice, I hit the shot. At first, it seemed like it was going off target but it entered the net.”

The 37 year old former Chelsea star now plays in Azerbaijan for FC Sabah.
