Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta was stretchered from the field in tears holding his right knee just 14 minutes into the Spanish champions’ visit to Valencia on Saturday.

Iniesta was on the end of a robust challenge from Enzo Perez, which infuriated Barca boss Luis Enrique on the sidelines, but went unpunished.

Barca’s season has been plagued by injuries so far as Lionel Messi has just returned from nearly a month out, whilst Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba were injured in Wednesday’s 4-0 win over Manchester City.
