Asked how Lampard has helped develop players on the training ground, Barkley told Sky Sports News: “The arrival time in the box to get goals.

“You see Mason [Mount] from midfield getting goals, you’ve seen N’Golo [Kante] get a goal against Liverpool. For midfielders it’s really important to get goals and I scored on Wednesday.

“We’re early on into the season but to get shots away early doors for me, Mason, even Kova [Matteo Kovacic] and to continue to work hard on the training pitch if you’re not in the side, to put 100 per cent in and you’ll get your chances and you’ll get into the side.

“I’m enjoying it. I’m working really hard. [I’m] in the England side and getting game time but I’m continuing to work hard with the manager on the training pitch helping each individual through the experiences he had on the pitch as a player.

“It’s helping us all develop really well.”
