Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has hit out at critics claiming there's too many foreigners in the Premier League.

The Ghana ace wrote for chelseafc.com: "I think it doesn’t matter how many ‘foreign players’ are in the Premier League, because the best and natural talents will always come through. The cream always rises to the top as they say so it’s all about spotting the true talents and nurturing them. The facilities are superb in England so the good ones will benefit from it.

"A few examples spring to mind like our own captain John Terry who had to contend with top players at Chelsea when he was young but still managed to come through. Jack Wilshire at Arsenal is a superb player who will go all the way to the top without doubt and more recently Ross Barkley at Everton is also getting rave reviews.

"It doesn’t matter how many foreign players are at Chelsea, Arsenal and Everton, John, Jack and Ross have all made it through to the top which has and will continue to be good for the national team. It’s all about natural talent, ability and working on them."
