Lampard worried by Barkley

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.”
