Ross Barkley played the whole game against Manchester City at Wembley today in a midfield trio alongside with latest Chelsea signing Jorginho and Cesc Fabregas (Danny Drinkwater came off the bench in the 79th minute).
And Maurizio Sarri, when asked if the former Everton star can be a proper option for Chelsea this season, told journalists: “I like him. He is a technical player. He has to improve on the defensive phase.
“It’s difficult to play with Jorginho, Cesc [Fabregas] and Ross all together but I like him. He will be a very useful player for us.”
