Ross Barkley, Everton – MID

In a bit of good news for the Toffes, club manager Roberto Martinez announced that Barkley may not miss the full five months as was originally feared. The star midfielder’s knee has responded well to treatment and he is now being projected to return to action in eight weeks. The medial ligament knee injury happened in training which forced Barkley to miss Everton’s season opening 2-2 draw against the promoted Leicester City. The next two weeks of treatment will be more telling of his potential return.
