Barcelona have confirmed that Andres Iniesta has returned to training ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Chelsea.

The midfielder trained with the group for “part of today’s session” which suggests he has a chance of being fit although it’s still pretty touch and go.

Barcelona will train again tomorrow which may give a stronger indication of whether Iniesta will be able to face Chelsea at the Camp Nou.

If he doesn’t make it then Ernesto Valverde has decisions to make about who will come into midfield. Andre Gomes still looks the most likely option, although Ousmane Dembele may have played his way into contention after a good showing against Malaga.
