In the 86th minute of Barcelona’s La Liga encounter with Villarreal, wonderkid Ansu Fati sealed an impressive victory by making it 4-1.
Jordi Alba played Fati through with a wonderful pass over the top of Villarreal’s defence, the 17-year-old burst forward and latched onto the ball before facing up his man.
Fati cut inside before firing a low shot towards goal, the talent’s strike appeared to take a slight deflection before hitting the back of the net.
Barcelona perhaps should’ve already been 4-1 up at this point as Lionel Messi saw a goal disallowed 15 minutes earlier, prompting this amazing reaction from Gerard Pique.

The youngster clearly has great chemistry with his senior teammates, Fati made it clear that he wanted a ball in behind and he made the most of this opportunity with a brilliantly timed run.
Quique Setien’s side have been back to their usual free-flowing attacking this evening, have the Catalan outfit’s come to the late into the title race though?
