Barkley says improved Chelsea form down to Sarri impact

Barkley says improved Chelsea form down to Sarri impact

Barkley, whose career has been disrupted by injury, has not played for England since May 2016.

"We have to play every three days, it is very hard and so we have to have a great mentality. I am not anxious if we don't score for 45 minutes".

"I know how important it is to take the different tactics from different managers on board. I feel [with] the amount of games I have played I am ready to be called-up".

Gianfranco Zola, Sarri's assistant, said: "We are very delighted about that".

"He had a problem but in the last five, six days he's been better so I think he's able to play tomorrow".

"I think Alvaro can restart from this performance".

Barkley missed out on a place in England's World Cup squad, but was on Wednesday hopeful of a recall under Gareth Southgate.

Cesar Azpilicueta had been wearing the armband on the pitch in absence of Gary Cahill so it makes flawless sense to make him the new captain.

The 22-year-old England player has recovered from a shin problem and is in line for a call-up while Spain winger Pedro has recovered from a shoulder problem.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard was less than convincing when asked about his future at the club and said that while he is happy at the moment, it could soon change.

"I think that he can improve more, because he has the potential to improve more", he added.

Cahill has, however, come back into favour under Maurizio Sarri of late, due to the injury issues of others, and started his most recent outing against MOL Vidi in the Europa League.

He added: "It was a really hard choice for me to make, but I felt it was the right time to take the step".

Chelsea FC are now preparing for a return to Premier League action when they travel to Southampton in the top flight on Sunday afternoon.

"To avoid the counter-attacks of the opponents, we have to do better".

"I've thought about it, and I believe that if I did have that type of approach from a coach when I was younger then maybe I would have improved a lot more", Barkley said. Technically, he is very good.
