New Chelsea signing Ross Barkley made his debut with the Blues shirt in the Carabao Cup semifinal against Arsenal last Wednesday when he replaced injured Willian.

The former Everton attacking midfielder didn’t impressed but it was his first appearance after a very bad hamstring injury occurred last August that ruled him out until the other night.

Today, Antonio Conte claimed Willian is still injured and sidelined for the next games, then he revealed the England international is ready to start:

“After a bad injury you need a little time to be fit 100%, if you want to speed this process up he has to play, not only training during the week, after Willian and Morata‘s injury, we don’t have other options.”

Jon Anderson, the Mayor of Liverpool, wrote a letter to the Merseyside Police, the Premier League and the Football Association as they want them to investigate over Ross Barkley‘s move to Chelsea.

According to Anderson, this move might have been deliberately delayed at the expense of Everton.

At best, this represents a very poor deal for Everton Football Club,” Anderson wrote according to ESPN. “At worst, it could be seen as a deliberate attempt to drive down a player’s value in the transfer market so as to benefit the player, his agent and the buying club. I am so concerned about the circumstances surrounding this transfer that I am asking the appropriate police authorities to consider whether any fraud has taken place.”

Speaking to Chelsea official website, the Blues captain Gary Cahill suggests Ross Barkley‘s move from Everton is a good thing both for the player and the club.

“I think it’s a great signing,” Cahill said “If you look at the market in this day and age, it’s a snip for a player like him. I’ve played with him and trained with him, so I know what he is capable of and so does everybody else. He’s capable of whatever he wants. If you’re looking at attributes, has he got two good feet, is he strong, is he quick, can he finish, is he comfortable on the ball? He ticks all the boxes and now he’s just ready for a platform to go and express himself. This club will give him that, like it did me and like it did for other players, and it’s down to him to go and take it. It’s a very exciting signing and for the money that’s been paid, it has to be a bargain. He’s come at a great age, that’s another thing. I’d say come and be confident, but not arrogant. Come and listen and learn from the players at this football club, work hard at your game and you will progress. He knows what he’s got to do – you’re talking about somebody who has got 20-odd England caps and a player who has played many, many games in the Premier League, even at such a young age. I texted him before he came, he trained on Friday with some of the other lads and I’ll bump into him for the first time on Monday when we get back in.”

Alan Shearer commented Ross Barkley‘s move to Chelsea claiming this will be the once in a lifetime chance for the England midfielder, that has to prove his talent at Stamford Bridge despite being stopped by an injury in the last months.

The 24-year-old completed a £ 15m move from Everton to the Blues yesterday:

“We’ve been talking about Ross now for a number of years to say what a talent he is,” said the former striker, now a pundit at BBC.

“He’s now got an opportunity once and for all I think to actually go and prove it.

“He’s got the ability, we haven’t seen it anywhere near enough. 

“Whether he’s going to play there or not is a different matter.”

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy replied to him:

“The thing is, £15million is not a big risk.

“I know they will be paying him a few quid, but in a good side like that, he can score goals.”

Chelsea today have signed Ross Barkley from Everton: this can change the future of a Blues youngster, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who is now playing on loan at Crystal Palace, or, at least this is what Palace’s manager Roy Hodgson is hoping for.

The way Ruben’s been playing for us, he’s a player we’d like to have at our club, there’s no doubt about that,” Hodgson said. “It’s far too early to ask me that question – I didn’t know until this morning that Ross Barkley is possibly signing for Chelsea.  But Ruben’s a player we like very much, we’re very impressed with him, delighted with the way he’s developed as a player during the time he’s been here.‘I’m pretty sure that if he’s ever available for sale, we would certainly be in there with our hand up as one of the potential buyers. But it could well be that Chelsea would like to have both Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in their team. I wouldn’t mind both in my team, anyway.”
