Barcelona trained on Saturday morning ahead of their next game against Villarreal, and there was still no sign of midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

The midfielder is out with a calf injury and has only played once since La Liga resumed, in the 4-0 win over Real Mallorca.

Quique Setien has played down the severity of De Jong’s injury but the club will have to cope without him again on Sunday at Villarreal and it’s not clear when he will be back.

Barcelona only have four La Liga games left after Sunday against Espanyol, Real Valladolid, Osasuna and Alaves.

Setien will hold his pre-match press conference after the session so we may get an update on De Jong’s fitness at that point.
