Barcelona's options to replace the injured Ansu Fati in attack

Barcelona have two weeks off before returning to competitive action against Atletico Madrid on Nov. 21. It will be their first game without Ansu Fati so coach Ronald Koeman has time to think about how he replace the teenager, who has been ruled out for four months.

The young Barça star had made himself undroppable at the start of this season, along with Lionel Messi, and Koeman must now make advantage of his squad, which does have options in attack. 

Ansu has scored five goals and set up four more, just behind Lionel Messi, who has six goals and four assists. Ansu has stepped up in the absence of goals from Antoine Griezmann (two goals, one assist), although the Frenchman has scored in the last two league games and Koeman backs him for his hard work.


Ansu has played in all 10 games under Koeman but not always in the same position. He has played on the left and through the middle, as he did in the Clasico. 

Ansu Fati:

  • Games played: 10 (8 as a starter, 2 off the bench)
  • Minutes: 596
  • Goals: 5
  • Assists: 4

Leo Messi:

  • Games played: 10 (9 as a starter, 1 off the bench)
  • Minutes: 854
  • Goals: 6
  • Assists: 4

Antoine Griezmann:

  • Games played: 9 (8 as a starter, 1 off the bench)
  • Minutes: 590
  • Goals: 2
  • Assists: 1
