With the game already won against Watford, Chelsea’s Ross Barkley put the icing on the cake by smashing the ball home for his side’s third goal in injury time at Stamford Bridge.
It’s the first time since October 2018, an incredible 34 Premier League games ago, that Barkley has managed to find the net.

Given the venom with which he connected, and the way in which he played generally, perhaps the goal will give him some much needed confidence.
