Ross Barkley: Fractured toe injury confirmed

The club said he had a "small fracture", and he could be out for anything between three and six weeks.

Barkley suffered the injury during the FA Cup third-round win over QPR last weekend, a match in which he also scored.

It forced him to miss the 2-0 Premier League victory over Norwich at the weekend.

Barkley has made a massive impression this season and has forced his way into the England squad, winning three caps so far.

He is firmly in the reckoning for a place in Roy Hodgson's summer World Cup squad.

Should his recovery take longer than expected, he could miss England's friendly with Denmark at Wembley on March 5.

Everton left-back Baines spent a month out of action prior to Christmas after picking up a similar injury.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
