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.
Him and Mateo Kovacic have been competing for the third spot in the midfielder alongside Jorginho and N’Golo Kante.
And the competition between them has caused both to put in good starts to the season.
Whilst Kovacic has started the majority of the games, Barkley’s impact is being felt of the bench.
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.
And Barkley made an impact again coming off of the bench, as he scored a late equaliser to make it 2-2.
Although the touchline scuffle that followed grabbed the headlines, Chelsea fans are excited by Barkley’s potential.
So, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to Barkley’s second goal in as many games for the Blues:
Ruben and christensen can learn alot from Ross. Head down train hard and the rewards will come. Good to see an English lad in the team to @ChelseaFC
