Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley insists he is improving under Maurizio Sarri and believes he can return to the England team.
The former Everton man has started just two Premier League games this season but feels he can still make Gareth Southgate’s latest squad.
Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante have all been selected ahead of him in recent weeks but Barkley insists his own game is improving.
Barkley will be hoping to start more games in the Europa League before making his push for the league side in the coming weeks.

He told reporters: “I’m playing a big role in the side at the minute and I believe my performances show I’m capable of being in the England squad now.
“His (Sarri’s) style of play really suits mine. I’ve played a lot of minutes. I feel as fit as I’ve ever felt before. I feel the amount of games I’ve played, I’m ready to be called up, if called up.
“As the season goes on I’ll show a lot more what I’m capable of, I’ll start to score a lot more and assist a lot more.”
