Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien says he's enjoying playing for Real Madrid.

The on-loan midfielder believes it is more fun to play in Spain than England.

"The English competition is very physical. From what I've seen so far in La Liga, teams want to play in a way that is based more on ball movement. This makes it more fun to play. In England some teams do not focus on playing, but more on the physical contact. That's where I see the big difference."
