Under the management of Frank Lampard, Chelsea have risen to seventh in the Premier League table whilst also reaching the last-16 of the Carabao Cup, though some of the club’s fanbase are far from satisfied with the performances of one player.
Ross Barkley, 25, made the headlines this week when he refused to pay a cab driver after dropping a takeaway in his taxi, and the on-field performances of the England international have also been underwhelming given the competition for places in the Chelsea squad.
Although the club attempted to celebrate the quartet of Blues’ players who have been called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the international fixtures in October, some fans were quick to call for Barkley’s removal. Check out some of the best reactions below.
