Ernesto Valverde praised Ousmane Dembele after the Frenchman rescued a point at Atletico Madrid on Saturday with a 90th minute equaliser.

Barcelona looked to be headed for a second straight La Liga defeat until Dembele popped up with his fifth La Liga goal of the season.

“He has decisive appearances in the game and with important goals,” he said.

“He has had continuity, in a team it takes everything

”Dembele has things that nobody else in the squad has - self-confidence, one against one, shooting with both feet, personality...

”You have to help him get the talent out.”

Dembele had to wait until the 80th minute to get on the pitch, as he replaced Arthur with Barcelona 1-0 down.

However, once again he made a decisive contribution, and he’ll be hoping to start Wednesday’s Champions League clash against PSV Eindhoven.
