Barcelona midfielder Pedri put in another eye-catching performance on Sunday as Ronald Koeman’s side narrowly beat Huesca 1-0 at El Alcoraz.
The 18-year-old was in from the start and once again proved to be one of Barca’s better performers during the win and linked up well with captain Lionel Messi.
Pedri also set a new landmark in La Liga during his 90 minutes on the pitch.

With better finishing Pedri might even have had a goal or two. The midfielder missed a couple of early chances but even so remained central to Barca’s attacking play.
Indeed Pedri also continued his record of having featured in every one of Barcelona’s La Liga games so far this season and continues to show why he’s earned Koeman’s trust so quickly.
