Chelsea fans have called for Ross Barkley to be given more game time next season following a video of him producing an outrageous bit of skill on the training pitch.
Having joined from Everton in a cut-price deal back in January, the talented midfielder was limited to only four games for the FA Cup winners after an injury-hit campaign.
Barkley didn’t feature for the Toffees prior to his move either following surgery on his hamstring after picking up the injury at Everton’s USM Finch Farm training base in August.
It turned out to be an incredibly frustrating season for the 24-year-old with his lack of playing time seeing him miss out on the England squad for the World Cup.
With Chelsea now back in pre-season training at Cobham, Barkley has been one of a number of players to return ahead of a big campaign for the Blues.

Following a number of images of the players on the training pitch over the past few days, the club released a video on their Twitter account on Tuesday morning of the midfielder in action against Emerson Palmieiri.
Using his dazzling footwork that he has showcased on numerous occasions for Everton and England, the midfielder produced a fine bit of skill to get the better of the Italian in a possession-based drill.
The video went down extremely well with Chelsea fans and a number of have now called on the player to be given his chance in the team.
Here are the best responses from the club’s supporters…
