Barcelona coach Koeman names Busquets in Levante squad - with broken jaw

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has named his squad list for their LaLiga Santander clash with Levante, which includes Sergio Busquets.

The midfielder suffered a broken jaw and facial bruising against Atletico Madrid and had to be transferred to hospital on Saturday after colliding with Stefan Savic.

Busquets is still expected to need some facial protection if he were to play, but his presence in the squad suggests that he is able to feature in some form.

The squad named by Koeman for Levante is identical to the one that he chose for the home game against Atletico.
