    Fati carries the Camp Nou – Player ratings as Barcelona come from behind to beat Valencia 3-1

    Barcelona

    Marc-André Ter Stegen – 8 – Made some massive saves, especially one from Guedes. Is he approaching his best form again?

    Sergi Roberto – 4 – Didn’t help much in attack and his defensive contribution can best be summed up by one moment in the first half when Frenkie de Jong, picking the ball up in the middle of defence turned to pass the ball to him only to find absolutely no one standing in the right-back spot and raised his hands as if to ask “where the hell is everyone?!”

    That Barcelona’s dismal second-half showing was turned around almost instantly just by taking him off says so much.

    Gerard Piqué – 6 – Really struggled with Maxi Gomez in the first half but still defended well overall and one clearance, in particular, was done with such effortless excellence.

    Eric Garcia – 7 – Surprisingly, young Eric Garcia didn’t disgrace himself at Camp Nou and even managed to put in some impressive challenges. Could he yet prove to actually be a good defender?

    Jordi Alba – 8 – Effective running up and down the left flank, providing constant width and some tasty crosses. Defended well, too.

    Sergio Busquets – 7 – Was a solid presence in the middle as the younger players allowed him to hide his physical limitations and get stuck in. Distributed the ball so nicely, showing not even a hint of panic.

    Frenkie de Jong – 8 – Played his heart out from start to finish, charging up and down the field and always offering himself as a passing option. No matter how poorly structured Barcelona can be, Frenkie always manages to distinguish himself.

    Gavi – 6 – Worked hard but you can tell he isn’t receiving the same quality of coaching that he does for Spain as he doesn’t look as sharp as he does for his country. Still, put a shift in.

    Sergino Dest – 7 – An impressive display out of position on the wing. Was always driving the ball forward, and did amazingly well to set up Coutinho for Barcelona’s third goal.

    Memphis Depay – 8 – A rock-solid showing at the head of the team. Completed 6/8 dribbles, created 2 chances, picked up a stunning assist with a beautiful lay-off to Ansu Fati and put Barcelona into the lead with an unerring penalty. Remains a fabulous link-man in the attack, and Barcelona just need to supply the running mates for him in the attack.

     

    Ansu Fati – 8 – Ansu Fati is a star, a big bright shining star. People may have forgotten because of his injury but they’ll remember after tonight. Making his first start in almost a year the young Spaniard was simply electric.

    Almost a minute in he struck a shot into the side netting, then 10 minutes after Barcelona fell behind he rocketed them back level with an absolutely outrageous Messi-Esque finish from the edge of the box (albeit with his right foot).

     

    Ansu terrorised Valencia every time he had the ball, holding it up, distributing it, and just being a menace every time he had it. After scoring the equaliser he then won the penalty with a brilliantly timed run that forced a foul from José Gaya. Every time he did anything, it created a threat. And the threat is something Barcelona have been missing all season. If Ansu Fati stays fit, Barcelona could actually do something this season; but without the titanic teenager carrying the Camp Nou on his shoulders it will all fall apart. He’s that good.

    Substitutes:

    Coutinho (for Ansu 59′) – 6 – Was awful all the way up to the point when he scored the third goal. Didn’t hide, but also didn’t get anything right beyond the goal. Is in such a strange place in his career.

    Nico Gonzalez (for Gavi 71′) – 6 – Solidified the midfield.

     

    Oscar Mingueza (for Roberto 71′) – 6 – Wasn’t outstanding but helped stabilise the side defensively.

    Sergio Aguero (for Dest 87′) – 6 – Had the Camp Nou on their feet chanting his name. Couldn’t get the goal they all wanted him to but seemed fit at the very least. If he stays healthy, could he be a big contributor?

      Barca has tremendously improved in their games. They should continue that way.
