Barcelona have announced Ousmane Dembele suffered a hamstring injury in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Celta Vigo but have not said how long he will be out for.

The French forward was injured right at the start of the match and was quickly replaced by Alex Collado, who made his first-team debut for Barca.

Dembele has now undergone tests on his injury, but it’s unclear if we will see him again this season.

The 21-year-old looks certain to miss Tuesday’s match against Liverpool in the Champions League with Philippe Coutinho expected to feature in attack again.
