Barkley’s goal made the difference that send Chelsea to the last four of the FA Cup.
Ross Barkley put in a decent performance after coming on in the second half against Aston Villa a week ago.
That performance earned him the start against Manchester City a few days ago. Today, Barkley came on in the second half to net the winner against Leicester City.
“I played with Ross and I know he’s a great lad. He wants to be the best player he can be and has a great attitude in that sense, said the Chelsea boss.
I won’t touch on that one, all I’ll say is before we went into lockdown he put in some really good performances for us.”
“His attitude has been spot on in training since the minute we’ve been back, how he trains and it shows how he looked after himself in lockdown. He was unfortunate not to start against Villa and since then has made an impact in every game he has played.”
“A great example of when you train at a level, have that attitude and when you have the quality that Ross has. He can score goals. He can shoot with both feet.”
“He makes the box. He defended well and showed great discipline in his game against Manchester City. He is reaping the benefits and showing it. I’ve got lots of time for Ross, he’s a big player for us and you could see that in the last three games.”
