Barcelona suffered an early blow in Saturday’s La Liga clash at Getafe with summer signing Ousmane Dembele forced off due to injury early on in the game.

Ernesto Valverde again opted to start with the young French star but he lasted just 28 minutes before having to be replaced by Gerard Deulofeu.

Barcelona subsequently confirmed Dembele had suffered a hamstring injury but refused to say how long he might be out for.

He certainly looks a huge doubt for Tuesday’s clash with Eibar which is a real shame as he had made a bright start to life at Barcelona.
