Chelsea’s Barkley fears hostile reception against Everton


The FA Cup champions have been superb since the start of the season having won their first five games in the EPL despite facing Arsenal earlier in the season.

Despite the chilly conditions in Belarus, a white-hot atmosphere greeted Maurizio Sarri's side at a tightly-packed Borisov Arena.

Zola and Sarri have formed quite the team at Stamford Bridge, our position in the table is testament to that.

"We had a very good win against Leicester and we were competitive in all of them".

Meanwhile, Blues boss, Sarri will be hoping to mark his first season at the club by winning the European title at the end of the season.

That's right. No gaffer in the history of the Premier League era has ever gone 12 matches unbeaten at the start of a tenure.

The information was provided by Sky Sports journalist Alan Myers, who took to Twitter to inform people that the Brazil worldwide was not involved in the session.

"Our fear is that they are very similar, want to get on the ball, want to travel with the ball", Sinclair said on Chelsea TV.

Despite the knock, Richarlison played on for the full 90 minutes at Goodison Park and scored goals either side of the break in the win.

"I am surprised how he has adapted if I think back to the first month, but not if I think of the last two months".

Barkley did not play for Everton in the last seven months of his spell due to a hamstring problem and moved in a cut-price £15million deal, with his contract winding down.

"I'm not nervous, I'm excited to play against my former club and team-mates - I understand how some of them play, so that could be an advantage for me. I'm looking forward to catching up with some of the staff there who I used to get on really well with".

Maurizio Sarri was unimpressed with Chelsea's ponderous performance against BATE despite a 1-0 win securing his team's passage to the Europa League knockout rounds. Only Cesc Fabregas remains on the sidelines with an illness.
