Pedri put in an impressive showing against Real Sociedad on Wednesday night but was already thinking about Barcelona’s next game after the full-time whistle.

The 18-year-old said his team’s performance is what they’ve been looking for after a tough start and urged them to continue their form next time out against Valencia.

“It’s what we were looking for. We want to go and get the next three against Valencia.

“We knew this was an important game for us, they’re leaders in the table and it was important to keep winning at home. These are three important points. We came out motivated and we knew what we had to do. We went out to give everything.”

The teenager was taken off late on after a heavy collision with the post after getting back brilliantly to help his defence. Pedri was replaced by Miralem Pjanic but played down the whack after the game and said he would have continued “if it were up to me.”
