Chelsea star Victor Moses has revealed that midfielder Ross Barkley has been the Blues’ best player in training so far this season.
However, the 24-year-old struggled for form and fitness under Antonio Conte last season, leaving many observers to wonder whether he made a mistake in moving to Stamford Bridge.
New Blues Maurizio Sarri seems to be a fan of the young Liverpudlian though, with Barkley having started two of Chelsea’s three Premier League fixtures and coming on as a sub in the other.
Moses’ admission that Barkley has been the most impressive player in training is a clear sign that the youngster is determined to make the best of his undoubted talent.
“Everyone has been good, everyone is working hard but I’d say Ross Barkley. He had a big injury but he’s started the season really well and he’s working his socks off,” the former Nigeria international told Chelsea’s official website.
