3 positive takeaways from Barcelona loss to Atletico with Dembele impressive show.

Let's see the bright side in everything – even in such painful games.

Dembele still going strong

Ousmane was arguably our best performer yesterday, with his first-half outing being particularly pleasing.

Let's just quickly analyse the issue: he missed about 1,000 days through injuries at Barca and yet he's doing better than Antoine Griezmann and young revelation Pedri in a big league game. Ousmane is like a new signing for us indeed.

Our defence could get upgraded

With Gerard Pique sidelined, it's likely that we'll see the Lenglet-Araujo centre-back pairing already at the beginning of December.

Just to remind, this partnership looked very solid in the Juventus clash. Finally, there'll be fewer old players in our starting XI, at least for some time.

Everything we need is consistency

We'll explain it by sharing the comment of Tribuna.com user Aadit Sharma.

"I still want to be positive after this bull***t performance. We can still have a comeback in La Liga and I know if this team go on their best form, they can beat anyone. Even if we lose La Liga, we can still win the Champions League.

"P.S Man City lost 2:0 but their fans are still being positive and that was to Spurs!"

Our schedule not that hard anymore

Every manager, even the most successful one, would say that it's extremely hard to win the first game after the international break.

Until December 8, we'll face the likes of Dynamo Kyiv, Osasuna, Ferencvaros and Cadiz. That's a perfect excuse to start things all over again and finally get back on the winning ways.
