Essien is settling down well at Chelsea
Chelsea assistant manager Steve Clarke has said that the best of Ghana's Michael Essien is yet to come.
The 22-year-old has been putting in some fine displays recently and earning the plaudits of supporters.
The Ghana international, who only joined Chelsea from French champions Lyon last month, now seems to be finding his feet, just a few games into the new season.
"Michael had an interrupted start to the season because of the transfer saga but we know he's a quality player - that's why we signed him," Clarke said.
"He's improving with every game and will get better as the season goes on - but he's settled in very quickly here."
