CCTV footage has emerged allegedly showing Ross Barkley being punched in the face while out in Liverpool city centre.
Barkley is seen on the video speaking to an as yet unidentified man in the bar.
The man then throws two punches, one of which hits Barkley in the face and knocks him backwards.
The man then continues to try and attack Barkley before being restrained and dragged away by another man.
The attack appears to have been unprovoked, with Barkley seemingly holding a normal conversation with the man before he was punched.
The incident in believed to have taken place in the early hours of Monday morning, just hours after Barkley played a starring role in Everton’s 4-2 win over Leicester at Goodison Park.
