Ernesto Valverde handed Arthur another start against Valencia, and he was not disappointed as the Brazilian shone again for Barcelona.

The 22-year-old has already earned comparisons with Barca legend Xavi, and the statistics show just how close he came to one of the midfielder’s records against Valencia.

The game was only Arthur’s second start in La Liga, just his fourth appearance in La Liga. It’s pretty impressive how quickly he’s adapting to life in Spain.
