Footage appearing to show ‘Ross Barkley being punched’ in a bar is doing the rounds on social media this morning.
The Everton midfielder was part of the team that beat Leicester 4-2 in a very entertaining game at Goodison Park yesterday.
He’s been making headlines recently for his inconsistent performances for Ronald Koeman’s team, but he was impressive yesterday as he played the full 90 minutes and laid on a goal for team-mate Romelu Lukaku.
Yet Barkley could be making new headlines this week for the wrong reasons after appearing to be knocked out by the punch of another man in a bar last night.
Footage – taken from a security camera screen – has appeared this morning which fans claim shows Barkley being hit in a Liverpool bar last night:

It’s not been confirmed that it is Barkley in the video and it’s not certain that it was last night – although the date on the right of the video says April 10th.
Everton fans will be hoping it isn’t their star man as they continue their push for European football at Goodison Park next season.
