Everton fans rip apart Barkley following Chelsea’s Community Shield defeat to Manchester City

During his time at Everton, Ross Barkley was compared to the likes of Paul Gascoigne and was tipped to become a club legend.

Instead, the midfielder has become a figure of mockery among the Merseyside outfit’s faithful.

In January, the England international signed for Chelsea in a £15m deal, but he made just three appearances in all competitions.

In fact, the 2017-18 campaign was a miserable one for him as he did not play competitively until six months into the season due to a serious hamstring injury.

Some Everton fans were upset by Barkley’s decision to abandon his boyhood club, so there has been some joy among the supporters that he has flopped so far at Chelsea.

The 24-year-old will hope to have a better season this time around as he tries to impress new manager Maurizio Sarri.

On Sunday, the midfielder started for the Blues in their Community Shield clash against Manchester City.

Barkley struggled to make an impact in what was a lacklustre showing from the West London outfit.

Some Everton fans took great pleasure in seeing the midfielder suffer a 2-0 defeat at Wembley.
