Gavi and Ansu Fati give Barcelona reasons to be cheerful

Published

on

Maybe Ronald Koeman should stay away from the Barcelona bench more often!

In all seriousness, this is the type of performance that all culers have been crying out for. Let’s not even dwell on the fact that Levante are usually the most accommodating of opponents at Camp Nou.

Paco Lopez has had the measure of the blaugranes of late, but his side were well beaten on Sunday afternoon.

It was three but it so easily could’ve been six or seven.

The icing on the cake was Ansu delivering on his long-awaited return. Still just 18 years of age, and with incredible pressure on his young shoulders, he took just a few minutes to send the faithful into orbit.

His movement and directness had already caused problems before the goal, and as long as he’s allowed to continue developing as before, he will be a worthy No.10.

‘Ansu-dependance’ really mustn’t be allowed to become something, however.

The clamour for a new hero is, perhaps, predictable, but in Gavi, Nico, Riqui, Eric, Ronald Araujo, Oscar Mingueza and more, the club have young stars coming out of the woodwork.

Give Koeman his due. For all of his other faults, his bravery in giving the kids their wings should be lauded, and Gavi’s performance in particular was sensational.

Just 17 years of age, and the midfielder looked completely at home being involved at every opportunity.

His physicality is, I’d contend, the main reason why Koeman favours what Gavi brings to the table a little more at this stage.

13 goals before 19 years old! Ansu Fati betters Messi’s stats

Published

on

Ansu Fati has not stopped breaking records since his emergence, both with Barcelona and with the Spanish national team, with numbers that better those of Leo Messi when he entered the professional scene.

Against Valencia he achieved another feat, becoming the Barcelona player with the most goals before the age of 19, with 13 strikes.

He is followed by Bojan Krkic, with 12, and Leo Messi, with seven. The young attacker managed seven goals in his debut season and four in the last campaign, of which he missed the majority due to injury.

His numbers are right up there with those of Messi as, at 18 years and 351 days old, Ansu has 15 goals for Barcelona while the Argentine, at the same age, had eight goals.

Ronald Koeman took Ansu off on 59 minutes due to his recent return to injury, but also because the Clasico is coming up this weekend and the teenager is already a pivotal player.

Jurgen Klopp: Salah better than Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

Published

on

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says, on current form, Mohamed Salah is the best player in the world after the Egyptian shone in the 5-0 win over Watford.

After scoring one of the most memorable goals of recent years in the draw with Manchester City two weeks ago, Salah was at it again at Vicarage Road, scoring a breathtaking effort and setting up two other goals in the 5-0 win over Watford.

It was Salah’s 10th goal of the season – he has scored in Liverpool’s last eight games.

Klopp was in no mood for dampening down the praise afforded to Salah, calling him the best player in the world.

He told BT Sport: “His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special. He is top. We all see it. Who is better than him? We don’t have to talk about what Messi and Ronaldo have done for world football and their dominance. But right now, he is the best.”

When asked for his assessment of the overall performance, Klopp added: “It was good! I cannot say differently. After international break, it is hard to find the rhythm after playing different systems, but the boys were so good despite only having one session before today. I think Watford had ideas, but we didn’t let them play. The goals were really brilliant, there was great attitude, energy and character.”

Leicester 4-2 Man Utd: Foxes stifle Red Devils’ desperate hope for an EPL win

Published

on

Manchester United’s 29-game unbeaten away run ended in dramatic fashion as Leicester triumphed 4-2 in a six-goal thriller at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Mason Greenwood slammed the visitors into the lead after a clever one-two with Bruno Fernandes, before Foxes midfielder Youri Tielemans found the top corner from the edge of the box to level just after the half-hour.

The game exploded late on, when Caglar Soyuncu, Marcus Rashford and Jamie Vardy netted in the space of six minutes to swing the game decisively in Leicester’s favour.

The result leaves United behind fourth-placed Brighton and outside the Champions League spots, with Brendan Rodgers’ side moving up to 11th.
