Cape Town - Everton midfielder Ross Barkley claims that his best position is not in the middle of the park but as a striker.

According to the Daily Mirror, Barkley says that he will have a greater impact on the game if he were to be played up front.

“I’m a striker,” said Barkley.

“I can have the greatest impact there. I’m free to roam around, take players on, have shots and create chances.”

The 21-year-old added that there is no particular pressure on him as Everton has had a tough season so far as the Merseyside Blues find themselves in 13th position.

“I believe in myself and I know what I can do. It's not me feeling pressure, it's just me putting pressure on myself if I don't do my best, and I know I can do better.

"I just focus on getting better every day, putting things right in training and then hopefully what I'm doing right in training I'm doing to show in games as well."
