'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barkley return date uncertain

Evertonians have anxiously waited for news on Ross Barkley's injury, but unfortunately we will have to wait a little longer for more precise news.

He currently remains in a knee brace and we await news on further scans.

The important news at this point however is that Everton gaffer Roberto Martinez has rejected media claims that he will definitely be out for five months with the knee injury he sustained in training.

Barkley was injured in training the day before the start of the new season with initial reports guessing the player could miss 6-8 weeks, after the first scan the media ran with the news that he would miss around five months.

Thankfully it's currently too early to predict, which for me anyway is a positive, as the worse case scenario is yet to be confirmed.

'His knee has reacted really well to treatment.

'I don't know where the figure of five months came from but obviously the extent of the injury is a little unsure at the moment because we don't know how the next two weeks are going to develop.'
Martinez told evertonfc.com

He continued: 'It's a medial ligament injury and we know that Ross, in terms of the power and the strength that he has in his body, he could easily react to treatment a lot better than other players.

'The length that Ross will be out is a little uncertain at the moment and it could be anything between the eight weeks that we mentioned or a little further. Until the end of the week, or probably the next 10 days, we won't know how the knee is progressing and how quickly Ross can be back.'
