Saturday’s papers report that Ross Barkley is facing a period on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury in training.

The news features in most nationals, with the Daily Express, Daily Star and Daily Mail all saying that the England man will be out of action for up to eight weeks.

Elsewhere, Blues skipper Phil Jagielka tells the Daily Mirror that he is confident Everton can match or better last season’s fifth place finish.

Manager Roberto Martinez stresses the same point in the Liverpool Echo, explaining that Everton will ‘embrace’ the extra demands they face this season.

The Echo also takes a look at the history books as the Blues travel to Leicester aiming to record their first opening day away victory since the 2-1 win at Charlton in 2001.
