Ansu Fati scored on his return from a 10 months injury as Barcelona won Levante 3-0.
Barcelona got off to a quick start, taking the lead in the seventh minute through Memphis Depay. The Dutchman – very much Koeman’s man – won a penalty kick and then converted it himself to settle the nerves and put Barcelona ahead.
Depay’s dutch compatriots De Jong doubled the advantage eight minutes later with his first goal since his controversial summer loan move from Sevilla.
The best story of the afternoon was Ansu Fati returning from injury after 322 days out to score the third as a substitute.
The result took Barca to within touching distance of the top four with a game in hand.
