It looks likely that Dani Ceballos will miss a second game in a row due to a tight calf but the medical team seem confident it’s not a serious problem.

Pablo Mari, who has missed the last two games, due to a mild calf strain is in line to return to full training next week.
As things stand, the camp is also free of Covid-19, which is no mean feat in the circumstances.
