Everton fans bash Barkley ahead of Chelsea clash

Loads of Everton fans have been giving their verdict on this weekend’s action, and they’ve got plenty to say about the return of Ross Barkley.

Everton travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon looking to continue their incredible form under Marco Silva.

The former Hull City and Watford boss had a bit of a rocky start at Goodison, but the Toffees have now won four of their last five league encounters.

Chelsea of course are unbeaten though, and former Everton wonderkid Ross Barkley has had plenty of influence in that.

The 24 year-old had to settle for a place on the bench when Maurizio Sarri signed Mateo Kovacic on loan, but has scored three goals and added three assists since breaking into the side.

After barely playing under Antonio Conte, the dynamic midfielder has become a key part of Sarri’s plans, and will likely face Everton on Sunday for the first time since leaving the club.

Loads of fans have been having their say, and it’s seems like a pretty even split between calling him a snake and wishing him the best.
