Blues midfielder Ross Barkley has admitted that it has been a “dream” of his to score against Liverpool.
Liverpool’s poor run of form continued against Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup last night. The Reds left Stamford Bridge with a 2-0 defeat due to goals scored by Willian and Barkley.
Barkley, who grew up in Liverpool, has admitted that it has always been a “dream” of his to score against Liverpool.
“Yeah brilliant a massive result for the lads,” Barkley told the BBC, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“After two disappointing performances we needed a top performance today and that was a great team performance.
Before adding: “Yeah of course scoring against Liverpool for me is massive, supporting Everton and playing for Everton it is always a dream to score against Liverpool.
“Not only that but we are into the next round at that is the main thing.”
One can understand why Barkley has always wanted to score against Liverpool. As he has stated, he is a former Everton footballer. To be fair, the 26-year-old had a very solid game against Liverpool last night.
However, he is very inconsistent, which does mean that he is a player that Liverpool certainly did not miss out on all those years ago. Barkley would be a handy squad player at best at Liverpool.
On another note, Liverpool look all over the place at the moment, which is something that has not occurred for quite some time. Something needs to change quickly.
