Maurizio Sarri not happy with Ross Barkley for this reason

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has told Ross Barkley to make better decisions and be more aware of his movement.

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley

The former Everton midfielder has rather been too impetuous for the Italian's tastes in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Speaking after the game, the former Napoli boss praise the Englishman for playing well overall but picked out some key points he needs to work on.
Barkley has spoken out about how much he has been enjoying life under Sarri this season and has described the experience as being like an education in football, and Sky Sport's pundit Paul Merson picked him out as a key figure to shine in the coming year.

Highly-rated even as a teenager, the 21-year-old left Goodison Park in January 2018 under a cloud with fans accusing him of not securing a big enough transfer fee and failing to realise his potential in an Everton shirt.
Well, Barkley finds himself in a battle for minutes with Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, with the latter having shown he can find the back of the net in recent weeks.
However, it was not his lack of goals that worried the Chelsea head coach in his post-match analysis of the win against Palace.

"When the opponents defended with very low intensity, it is difficult for the striker and wingers to find the spaces," he said in an interview with Sky Sports.
"So we have to arrive with a midfielder. I think now we have to work on Barkley for this movement.
"I think [he played] well but sometimes, he drove the ball too much. He lost two or three dangerous balls and I think it was better to move the ball quicker.
"Generally, in the 85 minutes he played, he did very well."
