Barcelona confirmed on Monday that Arthur will miss the next three weeks as he continues treatment on his injury, while Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been sidelined with knee trouble.

The team returned to training on Sunday and have two sessions on Monday as they step up preparations for their next La Liga clash with Espanyol.

Arthur will definitely miss Saturday’s game, while Neto may get the chance to come in for Ter Stegen who has picked up a knock.

“The first team player Arthur continues to receive treatment for his groin injury and he is expected to be out for around 3 weeks.

“The first team player Marc ter Stegen is receiving treatment for a tendon problem in his right knee as agreed following the last league game. He is currently unavailable and his recovery will dictate his return.”

Neto was back in training on Monday and could make his first La Liga start for Barca on Saturday, while Arthur’s continued absence is likely to be good news for Ivan Rakitic.
