Barcelona concede four at home for first time since 2003

Barcelona concede four at home for first time since 2003

Barcelona could offload Ousmane Dembele this January as they look to regain some of the mega-money they invested in the Frenchman.

But he was sick, the club confirmed he had a (gastrointestinal illness), he missed training because of that. And I am surprised that we also make controversy when he is sick.

"Top of the table is fine, I won't deny it", Valverde said.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Barca are sticking by Dembele, a €145 million signing from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, despite his inability to improve in areas off the pitch which are deemed to be holding him back.

"He's just like any other player in the squad and today the coach decided not to include him in the squad". "That's his usual trick to be late, although in his defence I'm sure he'll say: 'I'm not the only one'".

Pique, while conceding that all their defenders all needed to improve, was also adamant that the champions' fans should not be anxious about the current frailties of the team's rearguard.

However, Barcelona goalkeeper then let a shot from Giovani Lo Celso slip through his hands and although substitute Arturo Vidal reduced the deficit on 79 minutes, Ivan Rakitic was sent off moments later and Sergio Canales made it 4-2 soon after.

However, his presence - and two goals - was not enough to prevent Barcelona from falling to a shock home defeat and miss out on a chance to extend their lead at the top of La Liga to four points.

The France worldwide started the current campaign well, scoring five goals in his first six appearances, but has not started a league game since September 29 since being replaced in the side by Arthur Melo.

"The problem was that we did not play well, we did not control the game and we kept on making mistakes which is why we were behind at halftime", said the coach.

"It's basic stuff which we know and we have talked about". We came from a run of very good results.

"I think that, defensively, we all need to improve".

He was initially quizzed on the way that his team pressed the ball.

"We paid dearly for not playing well in the first half".
