Cesc Fàbregas is fit again. On Friday he was given the medical all-clear after being sidelined with a hamstring injury he sustained during a training session on October 1. He has missed three games for FC Barcelona (Sporting, Racing and Viktoria) as well two internationals for Spain.

More midfield options

With Cesc back, Guardiola is now only missing three players in Piqué, Alexis and Afellay. Cesc was on great form before getting injured, with 5 goals in 9 games and was offering certain midfield options that were unavailable to the manager before.

19 players

Other than Cesc Fàbregas, there were another 19 players present at the Ciutat Esportiva, including Isaac Cuenca of Barça B, who made his European debut last Wednesday. The injured Alexis and Piqué both continued recovering from their respective injuries.
