Lionel Messi: Forced off on Sunday

Messi was forced off after less than half-an-hour of the match on Sunday after pulling up with a muscle problem.

He now looks set to be ruled out of Argentina's forthcoming friendlies with Ecuador and Bosnia and Herzegovina because of the problem.

Barcelona confirmed via their Twitter feed that Messi will undergo tests further tests on Monday.

Barca are also due to check on Cesc Fabregas - who like Messi - was taken off against Betis.

Fabregas was replaced, after he scored twice in the 4-1 win, with a knee problem.

After the game Fabregas said: "I had already felt something against Milan.

"I started well today, but felt something again so I preferred to stop. I had an injury there three years ago."

On team-mate Messi he said: "I had the same as Messi at Arsenal, I had problems with injuries over one-and-a-half years.

"Now I think he should make sure he recovers totally."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
