The Ghana international featured for 75 minutes of the game which Chelsea lost 3-2.

The 29-year-old suffered a third serious knee injury in July, undergoing surgery after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his right knee during pre-season training.

Essien's return to fitness came too late for him to make the Ghana squad for the African Nations Cup which begins on January 21.
