Ross Barkley was yet again impressive in a Chelsea shirt as he played his part nicely in Chelsea’s 4 nil win against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.
He was handed his second start in three Premier League games and got the side going after his assist freed up space for Morata to slot in Chelsea’s first goal on the day.
He scored the second for Chelsea and subsequently provided 2 assists in the course of the game.
It can be recalled that the midfielder’s last start before his recent run of form was in August against Arsenal. However, the England midfielder now has 3 goals and 3 assists to his name.
Therefore, it came as no surprise when Maurizio Sarri heaped the England international with praise for his improvements and adherence to team tactics in recent weeks.
“He’s doing very well in this period. He’s improved in the defensive phase and he has improved his physical condition because the last season for him was very difficult with a very serious injury.”
“He stopped the activity for six months. Now he’s improving the physical condition. He’s a very good player from a technical point of view. He’s improved the defensive phase. Now I think Ross is complete.”
The Blues were very impressive on the day as Sarriball appeared to take hold in the encounter.
There were improvements in the team’s defense and this will definitely have pleased the Italian tactician who has been talking up the team’s defensive frailties recently.
The team continued their unbeaten run and will now face Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
