David Villa: Will not face AC Milan this week

The Spain striker was back with his team-mates on Monday after twice being hospitalised last week with kidney stones.

But he has been left out of the squad for Wednesday's clash in Milan and will remain in Barcelona to work on his fitness.

"Today I returned to train with my team mates, but after the colic of last week I am still not 100%..." he wrote on his Twitter account.

".. So we have decided to stay in Barcelona and train hard these two days! Thank you to everyone!"

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
