Will Ousmane Demebele Start Against Levante

Will Ousmane Demebele Start Against Levante

The comeback trail for Ousmane Dembele has been a hard slog.

The 20-year-old, who joined Barcelona back in the summer transfer window, for £93 million, suffered a bad hamstring injury when making his full Barcelona debut, in September.

However, the player is looking for that first start since his bad injury and had a taste of action in midweek, coming off the substitutes bench in the 1-1 draw away to Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey.

Dembele is in the squad to face Levante this afternoon but, at his pre-match press conference, Valverde was giving nothing away when pressed on whether Ousmane would start, with the boss remarking,

'Everyone on the list has the possibility of starting.

'I have already said that we have to be careful with him because he has to get involved with the team's dynamics again.'

Our prediction is that, once again, Dembele will probably be given time coming off the bench to re-integrate himself in the side again.
