|The surprising thing Maurizio Sarri said about Ross Barkley after superb display at Southampton
| sbo128 Despite scoring his first goal for Chelsea and getting his first Premier League assist for the club, Maurizio Sarri insists Sunday's man of the match display against Southampton was not Ross Barkley's best performance for him so far. The 24-year-old was excellent in the 3-0 victory over the Saints, winning the ball off Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to set up Eden Hazard for the opening goal before bundling in the second with his knee in the second half.
The midfielder was also celebrating his return to the England squad, however Sarri believes Barkley's performance in the Carabao Cup victory over Liverpool at Anfield was actually better than his one at St Mary's. "I think the best performance of Ross was in the Carabao Cup in Liverpool," Sarri said. "Today he has played very well, but I am really happy with him. From the beginning he has improved day by day, week by week and match by match.
"So I am very happy sbo128 with him and for him, for the goal, for the national team. I think he had a very serious injury in the previous season, but I think he is improving. "I said to him from the first day that he has great quality, physical and technical quality. But you have to improve from the tactical point of view, but now he has improved [tactically].
"I don’t know [what his potential is]. But potentially he is a great player. He has quality, very important qualities in the physical and technically point of view, sbo128 now he is improving in the tactical point of view. He will become a very important player in England and for the England national team."
