That the drop of Ousmane Dembélé has trastocado the plans of the FC Barcelona is a fact out of all doubt, but since Ernesto Valverde knew his final diagnostic has been working to find solutions to the absence of the French. Although it would prefer some more specific profile, the technician threw of several players to occupy his place.

If it does some days stirred several options to cover the gap of the recently arrived, against the Eibar have been able to see some on the lawn. To start with, and with Leo Messi like insustituible, Gerard Deulofeu has turned into his main substitute, contributing balance to the team starting from the right flank, the one who had reserved the one of Vernon. In the left, again a footballer with tendency to close to the centre, Denis Suárez, although this time Lucas Digne have not taken advantage of his movements with the depth that is used to to exhibit Jordi Alba.

But there has been a third answer by part of Valverde, that has recovered for the cause to a player that seemed lost, Aleix Vidal. It does hardly some days that the Txingurri commented that to the Catalan would arrive him his opportunity, and this has arrived again far of the side, recovering a formula that seems that it goes taking strength. The extremeño trusts more in the defensive possibilities of Semedo, and that's why in the times that has combined his presence, always has planted to the Portuguese by behind, finding in the '10' to the best complement for the one of Puigpelat.

They will not be always the same and the rotations will change the faces in the eleven, but for the moment already have touched some keys and have worked without too many problems. There will be more proofs the next months, but Ernesto Valverde already has some bases on which work.

Options that go down

If these three are the footballers that win whole in the first proofs of Valverde after the injury of Dembélé, there is other two that go down, and is that it Burn Turan and Paco Alcácer have not reached neither to colarse in the announcement. With the Turkish practically descartado, the one who himself has turned into a problem is the Valencian, that suffers the same problems that Luis Suárez but besides does not have his same voracity of face to the goal. It will be necessary to see which is his future in the Barça in the next months.
