Chelsea fans react after Ross Barkley scores stunning free-kick

Following the announcement that Frank Lampard had come ‘home’ to Chelsea earlier this summer, the west London side have had a rather impressive pre-season so far.

The Blues have handed chances to several of the club’s academy players and watched them shine, whilst they also secured a fine 2-1 victory over Barcelona too.

And having earned a 4-3 comeback win over Reading on Sunday, Chelsea fans have been purring over Ross Barkley’s goal in the game.

The England international’s sumptuous free-kick nestled into the top corner, and many Blues supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the stunning strike.

Many felt that Barkley – valued at £27m by Transfermarkt – was “channelling his inner Lampard”, and that he was beginning to show signs of developing into a much-needed goal-scoring midfielder.

Indeed, some expressed their hope that the 25-year-old would be given the responsibility of set-piece duties next season and felt relieved that centre-back David Luiz could be taken off free-kicks.

Blues fans even thought Barkley’s goal and overall pre-season performances were a sign of things to come from the former Everton midfielder and insisted that he could be a star player for them next season.
