Baines (hamstring) is unavailable for Saturday's match with Burnley.

Baines played 45 minutes in a behind-closed-doors game against Wigan early in the week, but a follow-up scan revealed a setback the following day. Baines last featured during the Middlesbrough match in mid-September. Bryan Oviedo is expected to start at left-back for Saturday's match.

Leighton Baines: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines is questionable for Saturday's match against Burnley after suffering a setback with his hamstring, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Baines was held out of last weekend's match against Manchester City because of the injury, and if he cannot play this weekend, Bryan Oviedo will likely fill in again.

October 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines (hamstring) is fit enough to play in Saturday's match with Manchester City.

Baines last featured 17 September against Middlesbrough and is now available for selection. Baines has been Everton's starting left-back for some time and will be expected to make the starting XI if he is fully fit.

September 29, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines (hamstring) will not be risked for Friday's match with Crystal Palace.

Baines' hamstring is not quite ready for playing time, with manager, Ronald Koeman, not ready to risk the club captain. The international break comes at good time for Baines as he will have two weeks to get his hamstring right. Seamus Coleman and Bryan Oviedo are expected to start at outside-back in the place of Baines.

September 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines is not in the 18-man squad to face Bournemouth on Saturday because of a hamstring injury, according to Phil Kirkbride of the Liverpool Echo.

Bryan Oviedo will get the start in his place.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines missed a penalty, fired two shots on goal and had three interceptions in Saturday's 1-0 win over Stoke City.

The penalty miss is really a technicality, as keeper Shay Given was unluckily pegged with an own goal. Though he's getting up there in years, Baines remains a decent option at left back now that he's back in the team following an injury-plagued 2015-16.

August 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines won four tackles and provided a single cross during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Spurs.

Baines was uncharacteristically unable to get forward Saturday, as he was forced to deal with the added attacking threat from Kyle Walker on the flank. The Toffees were able to secure an early lead, and Baines and the rest of the defensive unit did well to hold on for a point as Tottenham repeatedly threatened throughout the rest of the match. Look for the fullback to join the attack with his usual aplomb next Saturday versus West Brom.

June 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines scored two goals and added an assist in just 23 appearances this season as he dealt with a myriad of injuries.

The fullback waited until December to make his season debut while recovering from ankle surgery, and the emergence of Bryan Oviedo combined with lingering effects of his injury limited him for the rest of the campaign. Baines has proven himself to be one of the premier left backs in England over the last few seasons, but his age and injury history, in addition to Oviedo's presence, could see his role continue to diminish next season.
