The Express and Star journalist Matt Maher has revealed that Aston Villa’s Ross Barkley is expected to miss two games following his hamstring injury against Brighton.
Villa lost the third of their last four games in the Premier League against the Seagulls on Saturday. Danny Welbeck put the visitors ahead before Ezri Konsa pulled Dean Smith’s side back to level terms. Solly March netted the winner, though, meaning the the Villa Park outfit were once again on the wrong end of a defeat.
Losing Barkley early on in the match was another blow. Since signing on loan from Chelsea for the season, he has two goals and one assist in six matches, and has proven to be an astute signing. Whilst the issue could have been worse, it is still bad news for the Villans.
Will Aston Villa beat West Ham without Barkley?
These Villa fans, it seems, are gutted by the update, and they have taken to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.

Well, we can kiss goodbye to three points against West Ham or Newcastle.
Without Barkley, we lack so much creativity going forward. Absolutely no one in our squad can temporarily fill in for him.
Hopefully he’s back for the Wolves game.
