Chelsea Vs Man City 1-0 in Premier league 2009 - Highlights

Chelsea are now back on 2nd place in premier league table with a 1-0 win against Man City, 4 points short of Man U. Michael Essien who has featured in his first premier league match after a long break due to knee injury became the only scorer in the match.

The goal: On 17th minute of the match, a poor defence from City and brilliance finish from Essien resulted the first and only goal of the match. A 45-yard free-kick from Lampard into the penalty area was struck first and changed into a goal with right-footed short by Essien.

Though the match ended in 1-0 Chelsea missed a lot in the first as well as second half of the match. Essien had headed a pass from Lampard in 39 minute which went completly off-target.

In support of about 42,000 home crowd, Chelsea certainly rocked. The new manager, Guus Hiddink has arrived with new hopes for Chelsea and now the comeback of Ghanian Essien certainly gives them more chances for gaining more momentum.
