Having signed Ross Barkley from Everton on Friday, Chelsea fans will be eager to see what the 24-year-old can do in a Chelsea shirt.

With Chelsea to play Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed that the England international won’t feature in this game, as it’s too soon for him to make a return from a long-term injury that has made not to play a game this season.

“Tomorrow night is very soon, is very soon for him,” Conte said.

“We must be pleased because his physical condition is good and is starting to have the training session with us and understand our idea of football.

“We must be pleased, but he needs a bit of time.

“His condition is good, very good.

“I don’t know (when he might play). But I am very positive, he is a good guy and is showing a great will to work and desire to help us very soon.

“This is very positive and I am very happy to have Ross with us for the rest of the season.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
