The left-back has had a poor run of injury problems but had hoped to be back in the side for the clash with Manchester City last weekend but those hopes were dashed when he tweaked the injury in training last Thursday.

He is now a doubt for the clash with Burnley this weekend, with Bryan Oviedo ready to step in again, and reports claim he could be a further two weeks away from fitness.

The ongoing absence of the 31-year-old is a worry for boss Ronald Koeman, as Baines has not featured since the win over Middlesbrough in mid September.
