Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele produced one of his best performances of the season which saw Barcelona coast to a 2 nil win over Villareal at the Camp Nou on Sunday, and it’s no surprise he has received plaudits from his boss Ernesto Valverde.

The France international was very impressive in the game and provided the assist to Gerard Pique to open the scoring for the Catalans in the 36th minute.

Dembele’s stats now stands at 3 assists and 2 goals in his last 6 games for Barcelona, and hopefully, he continues in this form.

Speaking after the game, Valverde said:

“Dembele produced a great performance”

”He was one of the players that stood out. He has so many things to his game: pace, he can dribble, beat players, self-confidence, he takes risks… We hope he can keep showing that in the coming games.

”But this has been coming, it’s not an isolated [performance]. But we can also ask for more. He ended the game tired after the effort he put in and we’re really happy with him.”

The French forward was a constant menace down the right flank for opposition defenders throughout the course of the game, and this was yet another decent performance in recent weeks.
