Barkley sets goal target

Ross Barkley third kitEverton youngster Ross Barkley says he is aiming to be in double-figures with goals and assists by the end of the season.

The 23 year old is currently on five of each this season but says that he wants to get into double figures by the end of the season.

Playing a more central advanced role has helped Barkley get his scoring and assist stats up this season, but the England international says it is his job to get more.

He said, “I’m not happy [with five]. I feel like I should be getting more goals and I`m working really hard on that in training.

“Part of my game is that I need to get more goals and hopefully in the last few games of the season I can get into double figures. That`s my aim at the start of every season.

“I’ve got five [assists] at the minute as well and I aim to get double figures in both. That`s my role on the pitch – to create chances and score goals.

“I`m a mixture of a midfielder and a striker, so sometimes when I`m higher up the pitch I need to think like a striker. And, as a midfielder, I need to think about defensive work as well.”
