Essien delighted Chelsea kids getting their chance

Michael Essien was happy for Chelsea's youngsters to be given their chance in victory over Wolves.

Fabio Borini, Gael Kakuta and Nemanja Matic all saw action as second-half substitutes.

Essien told chelseafc.com: "It is great to have some young ones coming up and they put in some good shows this game. They show how big our squad is and we have a good future with the young ones.

"You could see that Kakuta is a very good player. He has a long way to go and he has a great future with Chelsea so hopefully he can keep going like that and get into the first team."
