Chelsea fans rave about Ross Barkley

Frank Lampard has some difficult decisions to make ahead of his first competitive game as Chelsea manager against Manchester United on Sunday, with several players making a push during pre-season to be included in his starting XI.

One of those is Ross Barkley, who has stood out for the Blues during their warm-up matches. In total, he scored four goals and assisted another three, making him the most productive player of the squad from a goal contribution point of view.
