Arthur trained away from the group on Friday, as Barcelona prepare for Sunday’s La Liga clash against Girona at the Camp Nou.

The club confirmed he had done individual work, as the champions prepare to welcome Eusebio Sacristan’s side.

ESPN’s Sam Marsden reckons the injury should not be enough to keep him out of Sunday’s match.

Ernesto Valverde could look to rotate his squad this week, as Barcelona are in the midst of a busy run of fixtures.

He certainly has plenty of midfield options to choose from. Carles Alena may also make the squad, he trained with the first team on Friday and is not in Barca B’s squad for their match on Saturday.

Barcelona play Girona on Sunday, Leganes in La Liga on Wednesday and then host Athletic Bilbao next Saturday.
