Both Coutinho and Busquets have played a part in every game for the Blaugrana so far this season, helping Ernesto Valverde’s side to win all three of their opening games.

The Spanish giants haven’t had the best of records against Sociedad away from home these past few years, with the club only managing one league win at the stadium since 2007, which came last season in a superb 4-2 comeback.

Following the announcement of their team news, fans flocked to Barcelona’s Twitter to question why neither Busquets or Coutinho were in the starting line-up.

Here are a few select tweets from fans wondering why the two Barca star aren’t in the starting XI.
