Michael Essien had a great career at Stamford Bridge.
Nicknamed ‘The Bison’, he was loved by Chelsea fans and he will forever be remembered for the amazing goals he scored throughout his career.
He scored one of those remarkable goals on this day in 2006 against Arsenal in the Premier League.
Essien scored late in the game (six minutes from time) to help Chelsea earn a 1-1 draw against Arsenal.
The Chelsea legend thumped his thunderbolt of a shot into the top corner to bring the home crowd to their feet.
Talking about the goal in an interview with EA SPORTS, Essien said:
“I saw Lampard and I shouted for the goal and he laid it down for me and the first thing that came to my mind was to take the shot… It was some crazy goal of course… The ball kind of bent and yeah, it was a good feeling.”
