Having left FC Barcelona on loan during the summer transfer window, youngster Ansu Fati has opened his goalscoring account for Brighton & Hove Albion today.
Fati left Barça to sign for the Seagulls on the transfer deadline day and is being slowly integrated into the plans by manager Roberto De Zerbi.
The 20-year-old was making his fifth appearance for Brighton today in their Premier League encounter against Aston Villa.
With the Seagulls trailing by three goals against Unai Emery’s side, Fati pulled a goal back for his team, striking home from close range after Villa failed to deal with a threat in the box.
The La Masia graduate struck for Brighton just five minutes after coming on as a substitute at half-time, giving his team a chance to mount a comeback.
