Barca attack picking up steam

Barton set for domestic return

Marseille midfielder Joey Barton is set to make his maiden Ligue 1 appearance against Lille on Sunday, following the end of his 12-game ban.

• M'Vila out until January

Barton, 30, arrived on loan from Queens Park Rangers in the summer carrying the suspension after clashing with Manchester City players on the final day of last season.

However, the former Newcastle man has made five appearances for the French club in the Europa League with the ban not extending to European competition.

And sporting director Jose Anigo believes his game time in Europe's second-tier competition means he is more than ready for a return to domestic football.

"He is ready and physically well. His state of mind will help us," Anigo told Le 10 Sport. "I'm curious as to what he can do but from what we saw in the European games, he will help us.

"He brings creativity to the team. It's important for us to have players like him. Especially now as we have a limited squad."

Elsewhere, Mathieu Valbuena and Loic Remy, who both sat out Thursday's 1-0 defeat to Fenerbahce with injuries, are expected to be fit for the Lille clash.
