list of some Barcelona player in each position that deserves more starts

list of some Barcelona player in each position that deserves more starts

With a busy schedule ahead, take a look at what players could help us perform at the best level.

Goalkeeper: Neto

The German has been in top form recently, proving that he deserves to be the starting goalkeeper at Barcelona. Ter Stegen has actually kept three clean sheets in our last four away games, an impressive accomplishment.

With the Supercup ahead, Ronald Koeman could be thinking about giving Neto some game time. But if we want to get our hands on the trophy, Marc should be kept between the sticks.

Defender: Junior Firpo

The 24-year-old barely gets any chances this term as Jordi Alba has been one of our most consistent performers this term. However, Firpo got the chance to play from the start against Eibar recently and he did a great job, as his stats show.

Perhaps the coach should use Junior more often when Barca face weaker opposition and rest Alba for the big games.

Midfielder: Riqui Puig

Riqui is yet to make his first start under Koeman despite the youngster being really good even with the limited game time he's been getting. Against Granada, for example, Puig put in great numbers despite playing only 20 minutes.

Now that Barca have shifted back to the 4-3-3 formation — which perfectly suits the midfielder — giving the 21-year-old a few starts in the cup games is a must.

Forward: Antoine Griezmann

Koeman put Griezmann on the left flank in the last two matches and, surprisingly or not, the Frenchman started delivering. He registered two goals and two assists in the meantime.

For a while, it seemed like the coach preferred Martin Braithwaite, but the Griezmann-Messi-Dembele trio seems to be doing wonders and Antoine certainly deserves more starts.
