Aaron Lennon scored in the first half and Ross Barkley put away two penalties as Everton cruised to a 3-0 win over Newcastle United in the rain at Goodison Park.
The Toffees have been in rotten form over the past two months but, as it has so often this season, the visit of Newcastle has been an opportunity for a struggling club to turn things around. Lennon scored the Toffees' first goal and created the second when he was taken down in the area by Rolando Aarons. Ross Barkley scored the penalty. Barkley created his own penalty in stoppage time and scored it as well for the final score. It could have been more for Barkley and Everton who forced a number of strong saves from Rob Elliot including two that Elliot forced onto the crossbar before they rebounded away from danger.

Ross Barkley set up both of Everton's goals, but the Toffees trailed for much of the match in a 3-2 loss to Leicester City at Goodison Park.

The loss kept them winless in their last three matches despite the form of Barkley and Romelu Lukaku, who scored once again. It was the seventh straight Premier League game in which Lukaku has scored, which puts him just four away from his opponent, Jamie Vardy's fresh scoring record of 11 consecutive games. After Leicester took a 1-0 lead early, Lukaku fired Everton back into the game with a rocketed strike from inside the box after Barkley's shot was cleared off the line. Barkley then assisted on the club's final goal with a deft back-heel pass that fell to second-half sub Kevin Mirallas to breath some life back into the home side. But the club conceded two penalties that left it scrambling to climb out of a hole.

Ross Barkley scored what looked to be a sure game-winning goal five minutes into second half injury time, but AFC Bournemouth pulled a rabbit out of their own hats to equalize in the final moments to end a 3-3 thriller.

There were some serious scenes at Dean Court today. Everton looked a bit sluggish in the opening 20 minutes or so, but began to play more to expectations as Ramiro Funes Mori headed in a Ross Barkley corner to give the Toffees the initial advantage. They looked to be in control by the break, adding a second goal by Romelu Lukaku who was set up by another beautiful ball from Gerard Deulofeu. Rolling along in the second half, the tide turned in the 80th minute when Bournemouth would score twice in seven minutes to level things. Barkley then got hold of a loose ball in the box to score with seemingly seconds to spare and the visiting Everton supporters went nuts. However, the Cherries had one chance after the goal to sprint forth to equalize and they did just that. A frustrating result then, giving up a two goal lead late, then another lead in the dying moments. Still, from a fantasy perspective, the attack is continuing a splendid run of form.

Ross Barkley scored two goals and recorded an assist in a 4-0 rout of Aston Villa at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon while Romelu Lukaku added two goals of his own.

Barkley set up one of Romelu Lukaku two goals, who combined with Barkley to score each of the club's goals. The midfielder scored his first goal of the month of November and his five goals on the season puts him one away from tying his career high. Meanwhile, Lukaku has now scored in three consecutive matches and has now scored seven goals in his last seven league appearances, putting him second in the league with nine goals on the season. The three points bring the Toffees into seventh in the league table in the midst of a three-match unbeaten streak, during which they have scored 11 goals.

Ross Barkley and Harry Kane have both scored in the first half as England look to complete Euro2016 qualifying winning all of their matches.

It really hasn't been much of a challenge for the Three Lions but it has given Roy Hodgson the luxury of starting some of his peripheral players in a match that, theoretically, counts for something. Jack Butland, Kieran Gibbs, Phil Jones, Jonjo Shelvey, Adam Lallana and Jamie Vardy were all rewarded with starts in a competitive match. It appears that they will not only get starts but success experiences as England look to have Lithuania dominated with 70% of the possession and all of the goals in the first half. Perhaps the goal can reignite Kane's season which has been a struggle so far.

A surprise but very welcome win for Everton boss Roberto Martinez. And evidence that Ross Barkley might have arrived in the Premier League…

With all the talk about John Stones it is easy to forget there is another £multi-million rated youngster at Everton. Ross Barkley has been on the verge of ‘blowing up’ for a couple of seasons now, but not really done it. Some were starting to think he was more of a ‘blow out’ – his FL price dropped (from £6.6 to £6.5) this season and only 8.2% of the FL universe paid up. But kicking off the season with two double-figure weeks, we can expect that figure to also be double figures by next week. Tougher assignments lay ahead – Man City, Tottenham and Chelsea in the next three – but if Stones, Barkley and two-goal Romelu Lukaku keep performing, skies will brighten significantly for Martinez. Although Chelsea might feel better about paying £30+ million after their defensive shambles on Sunday…

Ross Barkley and Arouna Kone both scored but the Toffees allowed goals to Miguel Layun and Odion Ighalo for the final 2-2 scoreline at Goodison Park.

Ross Barkley couldn't prevent Everton from dropping two points at home to newly promoted Watford but he could have announced himself as a fantasy bargain in draft/auction leagues. The Toffees won't be happy with dropping two points against Watford at home but managers who picked up Barkley on the back of a couple of disappointing seasons when he was supposed to be the "next big thing" could be in for a bargain if this is the season when he finally "gets it".

Everton starlet Ross Barkley is in danger of falling between two stools, when he might be better suited putting his feet up this summer.

Ross Barkley did a stint of media duty alongside skipper Wayne Rooney ahead of the Republic Ireland friendly last weekend. When a journalist asked why he wasn’t with Gareth Southgate’s U-21 squad preparing for next week’s European Championships, his answer was short and sweet: ‘Don’t know’. So far his England career has been equally short, but less sweet. Barkley has started just two of his 13 appearances, most of them reduced to 20-odd minute cameos like last Sunday. Begging the question whether he would be better off getting tournament experience and developing at his own pace, rather than trying too hard to live up to the ‘new Gazza’ tag that is becoming an albatross around his neck. Or even putting his feet up over the summer so he is ready to kick-on next season.

Ross Barkley, among the most promising young talents to break out last year, has struggled massively this season, making him untouchable in fantasy.

Barkley was a popular figure in the Yahoo game last season, and for good reason - he had an introductory price around the 5m mark (and this was when we were given a 150m budget to work with) and he was a force on the pitch. It seemed the pricing gods at Yahoo slighted him to begin this season as his price was much lower than expected from the start, but apparently they knew something. He has just one goal on the season, along with two assists, and is now struggling to earn starts. This time last year, they probably could have listened to any potential offers from suitors who were willing to pay an arm and a leg, but now his stock has clearly taken a hit and he needs to show signs of progress soon lest he be in for a long summer.

Roberto Martinez insists Everton have not received any offers for Ross Barkley and will not sell him during the January window.

Manchester City, who have a long-term interest in the England international, have once again been linked with a big-money move for Barkley but Martinez has made it clear Everton will not be cashing in. Barkley signed a new long-term contract in the summer and though he has only shown sporadic flashes of his talent this year, his manager has attempted to put an end to the speculation ahead of Tuesday's FA Cup third-round tie with West Ham. Martinez: "We have not received any approach. This January it is vital we recapture our best form and regain some momentum. If our best performers get compliments, we enjoy hearing those compliments and that is good but nobody will be leaving."

Ross Barkley finally scored his first goal of the Premier League season when a screaming drive from outside the box took a deflection and went in.

It was a tremendous shot that was helped by a deflection and it set Everton cruising as Kevin Mirallas and Steven Naismith followed with goals of their own before Bobby Zamora pulled one back for the Rs. The bounces were kind to Everton on the day as both Barkley's drive and Mirallas' free kick to significant deflections to ensure they found the target. Regardless, Everton were the better team and the outcome never seemed in question after Barkley scored.

Everton's Ross Barkley can put up a big fantasy score against Hull City in Week 14.

Back to full fitness and full strength after an extended spell on the side-lines, Barkley is still the key man for Everton as he dictates the pace of the play from midfield. Like Lukaku the twenty-year-old found it tough going against Spurs but still showed glimpses of class with some powerful running, clever passing and he should find himself with a bit more time and space against Hull to work some efforts on goal for himself.

Ross Barkley is over a month into his return back from injury that caused him to miss the season's opening seven matches and is still looking for his first goal of the campaign.

One would think it is only a matter of time before Barkley begins to impress with more fantasy production and Everton need it from him now more than ever as they have a rash of injuries throughout the squad. His poor output in the Yahoo game has seen his price dip below the 7m mark, so while his lack of form may keep him from our Week 13 thinking, as soon as he awakens, there is a chance you can grab him on the cheap. He has shown us he can be worth holding onto when he gets going.

Ross Barkley looks poised to break out soon and presents a potentially lucrative budget option for the Toffees

Beginning the season on the shelf and having been benched once in the four matches since he has returned resulted in a stock drop for Barkley, but when fit, he is a nailed on weapon for Martinez and now that he has had over a month of action under his belt following injury, he should be at full fitness. He may not be in form at the moment, but those who like to invest in players that look set to pop rather than chase the points of those who already have should consider Barkley, priced at just 7.21m in the Yahoo game.

Ross Barkley inspired Everton on his return from injury in Week 8, and he can do the same against Burnley in Week 9.

It was no coincidence that Everton's drop in form during the opening two months of the season occurred while Ross Barkley was recovering from a knee injury. It was also no coincidence that Roberto Martinez's men put in their best performance of the season so far on Barkley's return against Aston Villa in Week Eight. The midfielder's energy, driving runs and clever passing changed the dynamic of the Toffee's attack and he had a hand in all three goals. Expect another exciting display against struggling Burnley at Turf Moor this weekend.
