FOOTBALL – Chelsea star Ross Barkley compared to Frank Lampard…

Chelsea ace Ross Barkley provided the winner in the club’s 1-0 win over Leicester on Sunday. Ross Barkley’s goal in Chelsea‘s 1-0 win over Leicester on Sunday in the FA Cup was reminiscent of the type of goal Frank Lampard made a career doing during his playing days. That’s the opinion of former Newcastle goalkeeper Shaka Hislop, who was full of praise for the midfielder. Barkley popped up to provide the winner as the Blues progressed to the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday.

Having been linked with a move away this summer, the centre-midfielder put in a solid performance and capped it off with a second-half goal. Barkley came off the bench at half time as Lampard chopped and changed his side, and got his goal on the hour mark with a neatly-taken strike. Willian floated the ball in from the right flank and landed it right in front of the midfielder just in front of the penalty spot.

The goal drew comparisons to the type Lampard used to score during his playing days, with Hislop praising the performance the 26-year-old put in. With Chelsea active in the transfer market, Barkley – who has only made 15 league appearances this season – is tipped to be one of the sacrificial lambs. But Hislop his performance on Sunday proves he can rise to the levels required by the club and should be kept around this summer
