It was a little surprising to see Ross Barkley go on loan this season – most people were expecting him to at least have a role off the bench for the Blues.
But as it’s turned out, his move to Aston Villa is helping the Blues even more. The midfielder is taking points off our rivals, and this weekend against Arsenal he was instrumental.
All game he was a menace, but on the first goal he and Jack Grealish really humiliated the Gunners. The way he toys with the defender and then drops a casual backheel is just class.
If can do that against a few more of our rivals, the move will be looking like another genius idea from Chelsea.
You can see the first goal in the clip embedded here:
