Barkley recorded an assist and got off three shots in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Barkley was a menace all afternoon, weaving through defenders and drawing numerous fouls. Returning from a knee injury, he only played 66 minutes in the match, but he looked great in limited time. Barkley is a prime breakout candidate this campaign and this could potentially be the start of something special.

Barkley (knee) is in the starting XI for Everton's Premier League match against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Barkley suffered the injury back in August and has finally made the long return back to the pitch. It comes at a great time for Everton, who are desperately looking for an offensive spark with Kevin Mirallas out with a hamstring injury.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Barkley (knee) could return to training next week. "Ross Barkley is developing well," Martinez said Friday. "I hope he can join the group as early as next Wednesday and start working with the full team."

Barkley has yet to feature this season due to a knee injury suffered just before the season-opener, with initial estimates that he would return in six weeks, which was then expanded to five months. He'll end up closer to the former, which is great news for Everton and fantasy owners. If he's able to work on his match fitness over the international break, he could make his season-debut Oct. 18 against Aston Villa.

Manchester City may target Barkley (knee) or a transfer next summer after failing to land him with their first effort last June, according to the Daily Mail.

Manchester City felt Barkley was overpriced last summer, so didn't pursue the deal, but are expected to return next summer as they try to ensure they have enough homegrown players on the roster. Barkley remains out with a knee ligament injury and no expected return date.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Barkley could return from his knee injury in as little as eight weeks. "It's a medial ligament injury and we know that Ross, in terms of the power and strength that he has in his body, he could easily react to treatment a lot better than other players," Martinez said Tuesday. "The length that Ross will be out is a little uncertain at the moment and it could be anything between the eight weeks that we mentioned or a little further. Until the end of the week, or probably the next 10 days, we won't know how the knee is progressing and how quickly Ross can be back."

Martinez pushed back on speculation that Barkley could miss up to five months with the injury, but it's clear he isn't going to return in the short-term. Barkley was widely considered an underpriced asset in most salary cap games, but he won't producing anything in the coming weeks.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Saturday that Barkley could miss "anything from seven week to four or five months" due to the knee injury he suffered in training Friday, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The initial estimate for Barkley was six weeks, so the possibility that he could be out until February is certainly a shot. It's a major blow to Everton and fantasy owners, who were expecting Barkley to take a leap this season.

Barkely suffered a knee injury during training Friday and he is expected to be out for at least six weeks, the Liverpool Echo reports.

This is a massive blow to Everton, and many fantasy Premier League teams who were expecting a big jump from Barkley this season. He is set to undergo additional scans, but the early estimates is that he will miss at least six weeks and possibly as many as eight.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Barkley looks to have secured a starting spot for Everton for the upcoming 2014-15 campaign after being a sub for a quarter of the season last year.

Barkley has breakout potential written all over him and after starting 25 games last season, he looks primed to be a regular in the starting XI for the upcoming season. After having six goals and no assists last season, Barkley looks primed to surpass those numbers and become one of Everton's biggest threats this season. The 20 year old is only getting better and it would be wise to insert him into your lineups before his value gets too high.
