PLAYER CHAT : Rafinha and Arda Turan will be available for Granada clash

Rafinha and Turan are set to return

It's not all bad news with respect to Barcelona on the injury front. Two important players are coming back in Arda Turan and Rafinha and both are expected to be ready to face Granada at the weekend if needed. The pair's injuries are healing very well and after being forced out of the Valencia squad they will return. Arda has already received medical clearance to play.

It's good timing because Andres Iniesta's knee injury adds to problems which left Luis Enrique with sparse resources, considering Jasper Cillessen, Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique are injured, while outsider Aleix Vidal also has an adductor problem.
Luis Enrique will have 17 players ready for the Granada squad, so one youth player is likely to fill the extra spot.
