Baines hoping for early Everton return during Christmas period

Leighton Baines is hoping to return to the Everton first team during the hectic Christmas fixtures, according to The Guardian.

The left-back has been absent since breaking a toe during the Toffees’ thrilling 3-3 draw with Liverpool in late November, and the prognosis initially called for an absence of up to six weeks for the England international.


Baines, who was heavily rumoured to move to Man United during the summer with former Everton boss David Moyes taking the reins at Old Trafford, has admitted that he is waiting for developments in his condition, but hopes to play at least some part in the festive period.


He said: “The manager said early on it's quite a broad timeframe that you can be looking at. We thought about different things, injections and stuff, but we didn't know whether that would set me back further so we are just trying to let it heal naturally at the moment.


“Obviously the schedule thickens up around Christmas and new year so you like to think you would be back and available to help the team at that point, but it's just one of those things. You have to wait and see. I've not been able to do a lot to treat it because it's a break, so I've just sort of tried to see how it heals really and take it a day at a time.


“It's been pretty dull because you can't do a lot. There isn't that much treatment so it's just been a case of coming in and doing little bits of work in the gym and just hoping it recovers.”


Baines has featured heavily for Everton ever since moving to Goodison Park from Wigan in 2007, and admits that watching his team-mates from the sidelines has proven tough – even though they have been successful, picking up seven points from a potential nine during his absence.


He continued: “I have found it really difficult not being involved," he told evertontv. "You do miss it but I have been quite lucky the last few seasons with injuries. I am trying to use the time as best I can.”
