Chelsea fans call for Ross Barkley to start after important equaliser against Manchester United

Ross Barkley is enjoying a career revival under Maurizio Sarri.

Having joined from Everton under Antonio Conte, he struggled for minutes due to injury.

But after a good preseason under Sarri, Barkley is playing a key role in Chelsea’s success.

And the competition between them has caused both to put in good starts to the season.

Due to his performances, he started at Southampton before the international break and repaid Sarri’s faith in him with a goal and an assist.

But despite starting both of England’s Nations League games, Barkley had to settle for the bench as Manchester United arrived at Stamford Bridge.
