Essien enjoying advanced Chelsea role

Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien was pleased with his attacking role on Saturday.

Essien struck twice in Chelsea's thumping of Wolves as he was given a more advanced role by manager Carlo Ancelotti.

He said: "For me personally, I don't mind, wherever I'm asked to play. Today the formation changed a little bit and I was more attacking than defending but it's all part of my game and wherever I'm asked to play I do the job for the team.

"Football is a 90 minutes game and we went ahead three goals very early in the game but we did not give up and we kept going and in the end managed to get four goals."
