Everton and their fans will be collectively holding their breath as defender Leighton Baines is facing an x-ray to determine the extent of the damage done to his toe during Saturday's 3-3 draw against Liverpool.
Baines' foot was landed/stepped on by Liverpool's Jordan Henderson in the first half and despite his attempt to play through the pain, he was forced off early in the second half. At this point there's no official word on the injury or what Everton are thinking might be wrong. We only have this tweet to guide us along with Roberto Martinez saying the same thing in his post-match comments.
Leighton Baines has just hobbled out. Needs an X-ray on one of the toes on his right foot after Jordan Henderson fell on it. #EFC— Greg O'Keeffe (@GregOK) November 23, 2013
Hopefully there's no serious damage to Baines' toe as a fracture or break could cost him significant time, something Everton can ill afford at the moment.
