Ross Barkley is another doubt for Everton as they prepare for Norwich City’s Premier League visit at the weekend.

The 20-year-old has been something of a top-flight revelation this season, which started with a man of the match performance on the opening day of the season in the 2-2 draw at Carrow Road.

However, the forward picked up a toe injury to his right foot in the FA Cup victory over QPR last weekend and is now a doubt for Saturday’s game.

The Toffees’ injured defensive trio of Phil Jagielka, Sylvain Distin (hamstrings) and Leighton Baines (back) are all set to be assessed as to whether they can feature, although left-back Baines is the only one that had previously been in with a chance for Saturday.

On-loan Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu is definitely out after he returned to Spain for treatment to his own hamstring injury.

  • City easily have as much chance of scoring six against Everton as England do of winning the Ashes at your place. I don't think we're trying to walk the ball into the net, its just that our tactics have been taken from Barnet reserves manual. The Mad Brewer has dropped off the radar, and some of us do miss him. As for that Barkley fellow, all I can say is phew! If we play out of our skins, we may even get a point, though it is far more likely that I will be eating my boater for tea on Saturday night

  • I watched the six goals scored by MC. I have read all of the comments about sacking the manager changing the format etc. Our trouble stems from the fact we cannot score goals. I am not asking the team to score 6 although that would be nice, if only we could score a few goals of the calibre MC did, instead of always trying to walk the ball into the goal and so often getting nowhere. Then we might improve our chances of remaining in the PL. Perhaps the team can start by scoring some quality goals against Everton. For Mad Brewer I have changed from being Canarydownunder Adelaide

  • i dont think everton need to worry about a few injuries. as long as they score 1 goal, that should do. no doubt city will dominate for large periods of the match, just as they have been all season. goals win matches, not pretty football.

  • Good you`re still around, Adelaide. I will miss Switzerland - when that Hadron Collider gadget thing really kicks in. Meantime, I`ll console myself with some cheesy chocolate and a cuckoo clock. Like the Freemesons.
