Just when Andres Iniesta was reported to be back in training after being on the sidelines for sometime, It is now the La-Liga's best signing of the transfer market who has now taken a trip to the sidelines after pulling up a hamstring while training was in session.

The midfielder pulled a hamstring in a session ahead of his side's Primera Division clash at Sporting Gijon on Sunday and is set to be sidelined for the Catalans' next three games.

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas will be sidelined for the next three weeks after pulling a hamstring in training on Saturday.

Barca's summer signing has been in fine form since joining from Arsenal in the summer, netting in four of the first five league games for the Catalan club.

But the 24-year-old suffered a hamstring strain in his right leg at training on Saturday and will miss Barca's trip to Sporting Gijon in the Primera Division on Sunday.

Fabregas will be sidelined for Spain's games against Czech Republic and Scotland, while he is also set to miss Barca's next two fixtures, at home to Racing Santander in La Liga and the Camp Nou clash versus Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League.

Cesc joins Andres Iniesta, Alexis Sanchez and Ibrahim Afellay on the sidelines, but coach Pep Guardiola has defenders Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique available again after injury.
