Chelsea No2 Wilkins happy teasing Essien, Obi Mikel about lack of goals

Chelsea No2 Ray Wilkins was delighted with Michael Essien's brace in victory over West Ham United.

Essien celebrated the goals with Wilkins.

And the coach told chelseafc.com: "I've been telling him for a while that he is allowed to score, he and John Obi I keep telling. When John hit the bar I told him that's only to keep the net up, so he had a little flea in his ear as well.

"I've been telling him a while so it was good to see him score."
