The Frenchman is securing vital points

Ousmane Dembele was at it again for Barcelona on Saturday, as he scored the winner in a 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad at Anoeta.

He needed a bit of luck with his goal, the ball taking a couple of deflections on its way past goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli.

Still, it’s yet another vital contribution from the young Frenchman in the early weeks of the season.

He’s now won more points with his goals and assists than any other player in La Liga.

He’s also scored as many league goals this season as he managed in his first (injury-interrupted) campaign with Barcelona.

It wasn’t the perfect performance from Dembele, but the signs so far this season are really encouraging.
