Ross Barkley sends message to fans after Newcastle win

Ross Barkley took to social media to celebrate Chelsea FC’s 3-0 FA Cup win over Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.

Barkley came on as a substitute in the second half as he made his Stamford Bridge debut for the Blues, who booked their place in the fifth round of the competition.

The 24-year-old has been getting used to life at the west London side after having signed for the Blues from Everton at the start of the January transfer window.

It is likely to take the England midfielder some time to rediscover his best form for the Blues after he missed the first half of the season due to a serious hamstring injury.

However, he was clearly thrilled to play a part as Chelsea FC beat the Magpies and he came on for the final 17 minutes at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
