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.
⚽ Tornada als entrenaments amb els jugadors disponibles al camp Tito Vilanova menys Arthur, que fa treball específic. En dos dies rebem al @GironaFC al Camp Nou!— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona_cat) September 21, 2018
ESPN’s Sam Marsden reckons the injury should not be enough to keep him out of Sunday’s match.
Small problem kept Arthur out of training this morning. Should be fine for Girona.— Samuel Marsden (@samuelmarsden) September 21, 2018
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.
