Everton have confirmed that England midfielder Ross Barkley has a fractured toe.

DOWN TO BUSINESS

Relive the best action images from the Barclays Premier League.

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.
