The FC Barcelona has obtained an important victory in the day 19 of LaLiga in front of the Girona, although for this has had to pay a very high cost. Like this it has left it clear Xavi Hernández in his appearance in front of the media after the commitment in Montilivi, indicating that the team has to follow improving in attack, to the time that fears that Ousmane Dembélé sure enough have lesionado.

The egarense has been emphatic in adjust them that it requires the offensive line: "we Have to improve, especially we have to dare us to do more things in attack. The Girona has changed his style. We have dominated and had the possession, have recovered in high pressure... But the Girona has changed his form to play and has surprised us. We have to generate more things in attack. It is talent, tarpaulin... It is necessary to have more calm in contrary field, and have suffered. I go me satisfied by the three points, but it is necessary to generate in attack. I am satisfied, but it is necessary to be autocrítico and improve in situations of attack".

Between the keys, sustains that sometimes it is necessary break with the manual and desbordar by means of the individualities to hurt to the rival: "it has cost Us generate. We have to go out us of the guion. It is well the circulation, but it is necessary to drive and do centres. It is necessary to be more aggressive in attack. It expected that it tightened us further up and from here the two extremes and has not been like this. We do not dare to do the definite pass, have to centre, throw walls... There are few forms to do goal. We dominated and had the control, allowed it to us the Girona, but it was necessary to attack. The first half hour of the second part is what want. Also it is missing us pause and control".

Drops in attack

Xavi has thrown in fault to other two attackers that could not see action because of the sanctions that come dragging, as well as the fact that Ansu Fati have been fulfilling with functions that were not own of his natural position: "Today also it was Ferran sanctioned. Ansu Is not his natural position. To Robert misses him . That it go back already, but we have won without him. It marks us differences. We miss him".

On the other hand, it has valued the role of Pedri González, the one who has erigido like the figure of the Barça in the party when marking the so much that ensures them the three points to the Barcelona, a positive assessment extensiva to Eric García: "it Is differential in the game. It goes between lines, gives the last pass... And if you add him assistances and goals speak of the best players of the world in his place. It is missing the last pass, dare more, also happens him to Gavi, Kessié... I am happy by him by his 100 parties. Eric has done a big party. So much in defence as in attack, especially in the second part. It is a guarantee. Have a lot of confidence in him. It is attentive, is conclusive and is of the best in the exit of the balloon".

Worry with Dembélé

The exit of the international French to the 25 minutes of game does not bring achieve a panorama very alentador and like this has left it know the technician in his press conference, waiting for the medical examinations: "I Think that there is injury. It is one of the players more determinants. It has noticed something in the cuádriceps. We expect that it was the less grave possible. We wanted to open the field today with him and have lost to the most differential player".

Self-criticism of face to the next party

For the date 20, the Barcelona will explain again with the players sanctioned, waiting for what can occur with 'Dembouz': "Have options. They go back Ferran and Robert, and have to Raphinha, Ansu... Also it is Gavi. There are options. We do not need any incorporation. This is not a play, there is another in front. I also want to win by 4-0. It is not that they do not do me case. It is necessary to improve, but are in a good moment. It is necessary to do self-criticism, but are happy. It is necessary to value of where came the past year. We have done a very big change. The change of the team and of a lot of players is big. We have to improve, but we are on the way".
