Ross Barkley has given Frank Lampard a selection headache, according to the coach.
Barkley has come back in contention after a lengthy spell on the sidelines and now Lampard is finding it tough to fit everyone in.
“I speak a lot with Ross and I really like him,” Lampard told Chelsea’s official website.
“He came to me a couple of weeks ago and said he was starting to feel good. It was a niggly injury, but he’s just starting to feel absolutely released from it.
“This was the performance [against Burnley] we want out of Ross. It was so positive and you saw his quality on the ball; he can hit a right-foot ball, left-foot ball, take the ball well. He looked confident.
“That’s part of Ross’s game you could maybe question if you look from the outside: how confident is he when things go against him slightly?
“This was exactly what Ross can do; an England player, playing for Chelsea, has given me a lot of thinking to do with that performance.
“He just needs to train well and he needs to play well – and he played well against Burnley. He needs to continue like that.”
