Essien scored on his league return as Chelsea moved to within four points of leaders Manchester United.

The midfielder capped an impressive display with a looping finish, after Frank Lampard’s free-kick found him unmarked on the edge of the area .

Chelsea failed to find the second their superior possession warranted, though Juliano Belletti hit the post and Shay Given saved well from Didier Drogba.

At 1-0 down City were never out of it, but aside from Valeri Bojinov’s crisp volley late on, Petr Cech in the Chelsea goal had a relaxing time of it in the closing stages.

Ballack and Florent Malouda had chances to double Chelsea’s lead as the clock ticked down, but it wasn’t to be and the home fans appeared fully satisfied when the final whistle signalled another three points for Hiddink’s rejuvenated team
