Messi gets knee injury



Barcelona have been dealt a blow after Lionel Messi suffered a knee injury during Saturday's clash with Las Palmas.
The 28-year-old collided with goalkeeper Javi Varas inside the 18-yard box after just three minutes.

Messi attempted to continue but failed to shrug off the knock, with Barca coach Luis Enrique replacing him with Munir seven minutes later.
Team-mate Andres Iniesta could be seen quizzing club doctor Ricard Pruna over the severity of the injury, but little more will be known until he undergoes further tests.
The loss of their star man comes as the club bid to bounce back from their shock 4-1 defeat to Celta Vigo on Wednesday.
