The Spanish international trained with the rest of his Valencia team-mates on Thursday, but was subsequently withdrawn from the squad for Saturday's game.
Central midfielders David Albelda and Ruben Baraja will be fit for the Villarreal clash despite missing training to undergo some light fitness sessions.
Both players performed for Spain in the World Cup in the summer, and have been regulars for the Che this term leading to the pair complaining of tiredness in recent matches.
For this reason Valencia coach Rafa Benitez sent the duo to work solely with the club's fitness trainer, Paco Aiestaran.
Valencia are desperate to have their two midfield lynchpins ready for the coming month as they have a series of fixtures against their main rivals for the La Liga title.
However, Baraja will sit out the game against Villarreal as he is suspended.
