(Video) Ousmane Dembele shows Man United what they’re missing with brilliant cut-in for Barcelona goal

Due to not feeling 100% fresh, Lionel Messi was benched for Barcelona’s La Liga clash with Real Betis on Saturday, but he still came on at half-time to not only score twice but set up another as the hosts cruised to a comfortable 5-2 victory.

Barcelona did score the opener, however, and will feel they should have pushed on from that point but they were unable without the introduction of Messi at the break.

The scorer of Barcelona’s first goal, Ousmane Dembele, was strongly linked with a move to United in the summer after it became clear that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would miss out on prime target Jadon Sancho, as per The Mirror.

United still need a right winger because you can see most weeks that most of our attacks go down the left flank and there’s not adequate balance in our playing system. We would be a lot more potent and less predictable could we attack just as well from the right flank.

For Barca’s first goal against Betis, Dembele shows what he can do when fit and in form. His injury record is a concern but watch how he cuts in and strikes home.

With pace like Dembele’s you won’t find many defenders who will beat him in a race. It’s just a matter of staying fit for the Frenchman.
