Ross Barkley equals Frank Lampard after goal and assist against Southampton

by -

Ross Barkley scored his first goal for Chelsea as the Blues defeated Southampton at St.Mary’s Stadium today to move at the top of Premier League table with 20 points from 8 games.

The attacking midfielder, who had not scored a goal since May 2017, showed plenty of quality as he came back in style after more than an injury on his path.

As OptaJoe confirmed via Twitter, “Ross Barkley is the first Englishman to both score and assist in a Premier League game for Chelsea since Frank Lampard in December 2013 against Sunderland.”
