Ansu Fati started his 2020-21 La Liga campaign in some style on Sunday night against Villarreal at the Camp Nou.

The 17-year-old scored twice and won a penalty in Barca’s impressive victory over the Yellow Submarine to continue a rich vein of form.

Opta highlighted just how lethal Fati has been in his last nine starts for club and country.

It’s been a pretty good September for Fati. He was handed his Spain debut, made history with his first international goal and then bagged a brace on his first La Liga start.

Fati has also been officially promoted to the first-team squad, is now the proud owner of the No. 22 shirt and seen his buyout clause increased to €400 million. It’s also worth remembering that he’s not 18 for another month.
