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.

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.

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:
