Chelsea fans fume at ‘woeful’ Ross Barkley after thrashing at Manchester City
Chelsea suffered an embarassing 6-0 thrashing away to Manchester City on Sunday in the Premier League and the result means they dropped to sixth in the table.
The Blues were blown away at the Etihad Stadium and found themselves 4-0 down inside 25 minutes, which was another low point in the season.
Manchester City then added two more in the second period, which helped them move back to the top of the Premier League.
Maurizio Sarri’s team were completely outclassed on the road and have now conceded 10 goals in their last two away fixtures in the league.
There was a clear desire to go toe-to-toe with the reigning champions, but they were annihilated by goals from Sergio Aguero (three), Raheem Sterling (two) and Ilkay Gundogan.
Chelsea face Manchester City later in February in the Carabao Cup and there will surely now be a huge inquest at Stamford Bridge after another embarassing result.
There were numerous poor performances on show from a Chelsea perspective, with a number of supporters taking out their frustration with Ross Barkley.
Barkley took up his spot in a three-man midfield and made a dreadful error when his header landed at the feet of Aguero to score one of his goals.
The 25-year-old Englishman failed to get a foothold on the game and was substituted off early in the second-half as a result.
Here are some of the Chelsea fans ripping into Barkley:

Mediocre Barkley wearing our Greatest ever Players Number 8. Disgraceful

Barkley always looks out of his depth.

Barkley was woeful today, so much that Sarri even made a change inside 7 minutes of the second half. He normally doesn’t do that.

Club deserve this for giving Barkley the number 8 shirt
