Michael Essien has taken part in his first group training session for Chelsea since September.

The Ghana midfielder has had a long spell on the sidelines after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament on international duty, but he has now taken a significant step towards recovery.

Essien is yet to return to full training �€“ he was only involved in non-contact activities �€“ but he appears to be on course to do so by the end of the month.

The 26-year-old is scheduled to return to first-team action in mid-March.

P.S. Sorry, i didn't seethe previous thread

really REALLY tremendous news. Cant wait to see the Bison in action again. If he has a huge lift on our play, I am sure Scolari will be thinking about what might have been as he counts his settlement

Not to dampen the mood, but the bbc is quoting one paper as saying Kakuta has broken his leg and ankle in training and will be out a very long time :( Was looking forward to him getting a game or two under the new boss.

official site says he will be out about 3 months, so not quite as bad as some are reporting but still a blow.

Patience people...let's not get carried away! Especially with our luck with injuries lately. He's not back to full training yet. If all goes well it will probably still be another month or so before he's ready to play. It's great news that he's progressing, though.

He has been inconsistent, which is partly his fault, but much more because he hasn't actually had an extended run in his rightful position. Helping out at CB and RB is obviously appreciated, but the guy HAS to be played in his proper position all the time if we ever want him to properly fulfill his potential and become the world class player he looks like he could be.

Hopefully the next manager knows this as much as we do.

I dont wanna assume too much, but that is a beautiful sight. Not only him being back out there, but with that big, customary grin of his. Maybe having someone who is such a pure player of the game, and who always hustles and leaves it out on the pitch will elevate the game of those around him, and start them turning in better performances.

If Lamps is the heart, and JT is the soul, then Ess has to be the engine and the balls all in one. Immense player, and I hope he retires a blue

sounds like a shot at him G4?...Essien hasn't been that inconsistent with us has he?

in less games he's put in more high quality performances at rightback and center half than he has in midfield. it's a curious thing how he can truly be regarded as a world class midfielder rather than potentially a world class midfielder.

I do love him, when he does play well in midfield inevitably no one else gets close to him, but there will be a time (next season, not this), where he will have to show consistent form or find a manager with a strong idea of how and where to use him. I think there are some similarities to gerrard 2 or three seasons ago.

Great news though

Wonderful news about Essien! But this caught my eye more than that...

One man who has impressed the coach is Didier Drogba, whose goal gave us the win against Claudio Ranieri's side on Wednesday.

'I am very positive about his contribution ion the pitch, he is fighting for every ball so the others can take advantage of that. He got his goal and off the pitch he is for me an example in the dressing room to make the team very strong,' said Hiddink.
