Frenkie de Jong was in great form as Barcelona swept aside Villarreal 3-0 on Thursday evening.

De Jong was in the Barcelona starting eleven once again for the clash with Villarreal, who had Arnaut Danjuma in their line-up.

Barcelona eased to a 3-0 lead at the break thanks to a double from Robert Lewandowski and an Ansu Fati strike.

Danjuma was switched at the break while De Jong lasted 70 minutes before going off to a standing ovation from the home crowd. De Jong had completed 95% of his passes and won ten duels out of ten. His dribbling ability and simple passing breathed life in the home side’s midfield.

However, De Jong did ask to be substituted which may mean he was feeling discomfort from a recent muscle injury.
