Baines To Get England Start

Leighton Baines looks set to start England's vital World Cup qualifier on Friday evening.

The Blues left-back has been continuously battling with Ashley Cole for the left-back berth, with both men featuring alternately under Roy Hodgson.

But the Chelsea man was ruled out of the clash with Montenegro and Poland, withdrawing from the squad on Monday evening with a rib injury sustained in the Londoners' weekend win over Norwich.

England currently top Group H, but the outcomes of their two fixtures at Wembley - as well as those of second-placed Ukraine - will determine whether or not they will be on a plane to Brazil next summer.

Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs has been called up as cover, but Baines should add to his 19 senior caps alongside Phil Jagielka in the Three Lions defence.

Everton teammate Ross Barkley's impressive debut display last month and continuing Club form means the 19-year-old could also feature in the double-header.

Victor TayCome on you Toffees and Lions, let's roar off with six points and lead England to the World Cup!
