Valverde's dilemma between Dembele and Coutinho in attack

  /  autty

Both Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho will be at Ernesto Valverde's disposal for the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United, and the Barcelona coach will have to pick which one he wants to play alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in attack.

The Frenchman has fully recovered from his injury and started the Catalan side's 0-0 draw at Huesca on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the former Liverpool playmaker had a positive performance at Old Trafford, giving Valverde a pleasant headache with regard to whom he should start on Tuesday night.

Before getting injured, Dembele had firmly secured his spot in the starting line-up, but Coutinho managed to fill in for the 21-year-old, despite some unconvincing performances.

Should Valverde favour a more defensive approach against the Red Devils, Arturo Vidal could feature in the midfield, switching from a 4-4-3 system to 4-4-2.
