The Englishman will be hoping more are to follow after his strike for the Blues
The joy was there to see from Ross Barkley as he turned the ball home in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Southampton.
An awful hamstring injury has curtailed his playing time with the Blues since his move in January and now he’s finally got his first goal for the club too, after 14 appearances.
Chelsea star Ross Barkley celebrates his goal against Southampton.
With his career stuttering at Everton his move to Stamford Bridge was need but it’s taken time for him to put the pieces together, doing so in style in the week he got back into the England squad.
And the 22-cap star also broke an amazing streak which had lasted 40 games for Chelsea.
Barkley became the first Englishman to score for the club in all competitions since Danny Drinkwater’s goal in the 5-0 victory over Stoke City on December 30, 2017.
Here’s hoping he’s going to add a few more and make himself a vital player for club and country.
