What a nightmare

Ansu Fati has been hit with yet another injury setback and is set for another long spell out of the game.

The Barcelona loanee picked up a problem last time out playing for Brighton, and manager Roberto De Zerbi has now admitted it’s bad news.

De Zerbi was asked about Fati and Tariq Lamptey at a pre-match press conference and admitted they are both out for a long time.

There’s no indication yet of exactly how long Fati will be out for, but it is of course a massive blow for a player who can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to injuries.

Fati has been plagued by physical problems over recent seasons which saw him fall out of favour at Barcelona.

He opted to move to Brighton in a bid to play regular football and was starting to get among the goals for the Seagulls before injury struck again.

Get well soon, Ansu Fati.
