Former player Jamie Redknapp has made a strong claim on Chelsea hero Ross Barkley after he saved his side from an embarrassing home defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.
Barkley had come in from the bench to help steal a 86th minute 2-2 equalizer as his side were losing by 2-1, no thanks to United’s Anthony Martial who struck twice to cancel Antonio Rudiger’s first half lead.
It is already becoming a trait for Barkley who also came in to help his England national team secure a 3-2 win over Spain in the UEFA Nations League during the recently ended international break.
According to Redknapp, the 24-year-old has had a very great week with his Saturday’s performance which adds to what he did against Spain in the national team.
He described the English star as manager Maurizio Sarri’s power play who now has the ability to provide a magic play for his side especially when they are losing.
With his return from a hamstring injury after a six months layoff, the former player admits Barkley is getting sharper by each game.
Barkley who joined the Stamford Bridge from Everton is now providing that relief for star player Eden Hazard who seems to have been overburdened with the responsibility to deliver victory for his team.
