Conte on Barkley after their defeat to Arsenal last night...

"When there is an injury to one of your best players it is not simple," Conte said. "Especially when on the bench the only substitute is Ross Barkley.

"Barkley has a lot of space for improvement, he is working with us only two weeks but for sure today I was forced to make this substitution, but he can improve a lot."

OUCH

And Barkley thought Koeman was hard on him.

I think this is one of those Chelsea transfers that the manager didn't have a lot of say in. It's not the first time Conte's made similar, less than enthusiastic comments about Barkley, it makes the suggestion that they've bought him just to turn him into profit all the more believable.

But, will he improve a lot ? Personally doubt it.

No doubt he will make them a profit, half decent couple of games, nothing spectacular and they could still flip him for 30-40 million under the next Manager in 6 months time.

I think he may have meant that everyone else on the bench was a youngster and thus Barkley his only option.

Not really glowing words of encouragement there. I think Barkley's dropped a massive bollock going to Chelsea tbh. He needs an arm round the shoulder type of manager to get the best out of him. Conte is just not that type. Roberto Martinez was perhaps too much that type of manager and probably over-indulged  Ross' need to feel the love. He needs lots of encouragement with a sprinkling of constructive criticism. Under RM, he got none of the latter.
Anyway, he's Chelsea's problem now, so fuck him!

Loved his last second corner. Everyone up including the keeper and he hits the first man. He got slaughter on twitter too. They want a refund

The worry if you're Barkley or a Chelsea fan is it just looked like a similar performance that we've seen plenty times over the years from a match fit Barkley.

Thing is if his next performance is as poor ...when will somebody who is obvs week mentally start letting it get to him ...if he read Conte's but in the paper he could already be full of doubts .
