Barcelona have suffered another injury blow with the club confirming Arthur has been ruled out of action for the next three to four weeks.

The midfielder has a hamstring problem that will force him on to the sidelines for a short spelll.

The news is a real blow to Barcelona at an important part of the season, particularly as Arthur has been in such great form in his first full season with the club.

He will miss the La Liga games against Athletic Bilbao, Real Valladolid and Sevilla, as well as the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final against Real Madrid and the first leg of the Champions League tie against Lyon.
