Barkley is a very talented and promising attacking midfielder, but his form so far this season has not been great.

The Everton man has scored two goals and created 32 chances in 13 Premier League matches so far this season.

The Toffees are ninth in the league table at the moment with 20 points from 15 matches.

Everton will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Arsenal at Goodison Park in the Premier League.
