Ross Barkley is set for yet more time on the sidelines according to reports who suggest the Chelsea playmaker has suffered a setback in training.
The 24-year-old finally arrived at Stamford Bridge in January following a protracted summer move which was scuppered when Barkley suffered extensive hamstring damage while working his way back from a groin issue. After undergoing a second surgical procedure, Barkley spent the remainder of 2017 recovering before moving to SW6 in a £15 million deal. Making his debut in the Carabao Cup [at The Emirates], it was hoped that Barkley would use the next 4 months to try and force his way into Gareth Southgate’s plans ahead of the 2018 World Cup Finals in Russia. However, this latest injury will cast doubt over his ability to cope with the physical demands of tournament football. There is no indication at this point on how severe the problem is. Barkley becomes the fifth Chelsea player already this year to miss a match(es) due to a muscular strain. Feb 5 - 5:05 AM
