Luis Enrique is putting less emphasis on Sergio Busquets - and that could have long-term implications for Barcelonas entire business model, says Guillem Balague. Sergio Busquets was praised for his performance in Spains draw with England last week. For fans at Wembley, it was a reminder of his cool, controlled style in the middle of midfield.Despite a high press from Gareth Southgates side, Busquets retained possession in tight situations and recorded a passing accuracy of 94.7 per cent. Sergio Busquets impressed in central midfield in Spains draw with England It was the kind of performance he has made his trademark since he stepped up to the Barcelona first-team in 2008. In September, he signed a new long-term contract with his club, which could keep the 28-year-old at the Camp Nou until 2023.Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu has made him one of the highest paid players in the team. Its clear how much Barca value him.But is that admiration reflected in the way they play?Theres evidence to suggest that Barcelonas shift towards a more direct style under Luis Enrique is reducing Busquets influence. Sociedad vs Barcelona November 27, 2016, 7:30pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Hes still an important figure - but the team are no longer playing to his strengths.Under Luis Enrique, Barcelona look to get the ball to the front three, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, as quickly as possible. They no longer play so many passes in midfield.While it has resulted in Messi, Suarez and Neymar scoring huge numbers of goals, its an approach which can often bypass Busquets. Busquets is making fewer passes year-on-year under Luis Enrique The number of passes Busquets is making reflects his involvement in the game.Those numbers have steadily decreased over the past three seasons under Luis Enriques management.He was making an average of 83 passes per 90 minutes in 2011/12, Pep Guardiolas final season in charge. Hes now making just 73.3.Generally, Busquets remains reliable in possession, as he showed at Wembley. Busquets remains careful in possession, with a 91 per cent passing accuracy this season He has a 91 per cent passing accuracy in La Liga this season. Only two players to have played as many games as him have a better average.

Guardiolas Manchester City did this well.They dispossessed him three times and forced him into giving up possession on another six occasions in their 3-1 win at the Etihad. Pep Guardiolas Manchester City put Busquets under pressure They also closed him off as an option for his team-mates. In the previous fixture at the Camp Nou they restricted him to just 46 touches.Some La Liga teams have tried a similar tactic.In Barcelonas defeat to Celta Vigo, his passing accuracy was forced down to 89.8 per cent and he had just 60 touches of the ball.Alaves, in their win at the Camp Nou, fouled him twice as they harassed him on the ball.Interestingly, whats going on with Busquets reflects a wider issue at Barcelona. Whats going on with Sergio Busquets reflects a wider issue at Barcelona. Guillem Balague La Masia - the Barcelona youth academy - continues to create teams that need players like Busquets, even if, right now, the first team seems to be veering towards a holding midfielder that can drive the ball with more confidence and turn around quicker than Busquets does.So what happens when the first team no longer has that fantastic front three they are relying on?Will they go and buy one of the worlds most expensive strikers to replace them? Or will they have to try to revert back to their traditional style?Enriques change of tactics and how he uses Busquets has not only affected Barcelonas style, it could also affect the clubs entire business model.Upgrade to Sky Sports now and get 12 months half price.

Shin-Soo Choo homered, Chris Gimenez had four hits and the Rangers rolled to a 9-2 victory over the slumping Detroit Tigers on Thursday. This was supposed to be Prince Fielders first game back in Detroit after the Tigers traded him in the off-season, but the big first baseman didnt make the trip because of a herniated disk in his neck that could keep him out the rest of the season. Fielder is expected to have surgery Tuesday. General manager Jon Daniels announced that after the game. Manager Ron Washington had already finished talking to reporters by then. "You just want to go out there and give yourself a chance, hope your pitching staff gives you a chance," Washington said. "We understand not every day were going to be able to put nine runs up, especially against this team." Yu Darvish (4-2) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out six and walking three. The Rangers broke through quickly against Detroit rookie Robbie Ray (1-1), who lasted only 3 1-3 innings. Ray allowed seven runs, nine hits and four walks, and the AL Central-leading Tigers lost their fourth straight. Ian Kinsler, who was traded to Detroit for Fielder in an off-season blockbuster, went 1 for 3 in his first game against the Rangers. The Tigers breezed to a 27-12 start before being swept in a three-game series at Cleveland. Star right-handers Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer were both knocked around in that series, and a 13-inning finale against the Indians taxed the bullpen. Rays start Thursday made the situation even worse, and infielder Danny Worth ended up pitching the ninth inning for Detroit. Worth, throwing a knuckleball, actually struck out two in a scoreless frame. "That was a lot of fun," Worth said. "Obviously, you dont ever want to be needed in that spot, but once I got out there, I enjoyed it." Alex Rios opened the scoring with an RBI double off Ray in the second, and Gimenez drove him home with a single. Adrian&nnbsp;Beltre added a two-run double the following inning and later scored to make it 5-0.dddddddddddd In half of Darvishs first eight starts, the Rangers failed to provide a single run of support. That wasnt a problem Thursday. Choos two-run homer in the fourth chased Ray, and Michael Choices two-run single later that inning gave the Rangers a nine-run lead. Gimenez had never even had a three-hit game before Thursday. Not only did he contribute offensively, but he also had little trouble behind the plate. It was his first time catching Darvish and his tricky array of pitches. "He let me do whatever I wanted to do," Darvish said through a translator. "So I felt really good." Texas has won back-to-back games for only the second time this month, but the Rangers injury woes remain a major concern. It looks like they will be without Fielder for a while, and in the third inning, centre fielder Daniel Robertson hurt himself in an outfield collision. Robertson came diving in headfirst to try to make a catch, at the same time Rios came sliding in from right. Replays showed a wad of gum popping out of Robertsons mouth when the two players collided. X-ray and concussion tests were negative. "Its a hard play, its a hustle play," Robertson said. "If we were to do it 10 times again, Id make the same play." The Tigers lead second-place Minnesota by 4 1/2 games in the division, but theyve allowed 31 runs in their past four games, an uncharacteristic spell for what might be baseballs best starting rotation. Detroits starters have allowed 19 earned runs over a three-game span, the first time thats happened since May 24-27, 2011, according to STATS. The last time a position player pitched for the Tigers was also in 2011, when Don Kelly did it. NOTES: Detroits extra-inning loss to Cleveland on Wednesday took 5 hours, 16 minutes. Thursdays game looked as if it might stretch past 4 hours for a while, but it sped up toward the end and was over in 3:30. ... Detroit RHP Anibal Sanchez (1-2) takes the mound against Texas RHP Scott Baker (0-0) on Friday night. ' ' '
