Ansu Fati was forced off during Barcelona's La Liga match against Celta Vigo on Saturday, the same day Xavi Hernandez was appointed coach.

After seeming to grip his left hamstring before collapsing to the ground, Fati's injury will be a major concern for Xavi and the Spanish national team.

He only returned in September after a ten-month layoff due to a major knee injury.

Fati's return to Barcelona has been a big boost, with the teenager netting four goals in eight matches since his return.

However, at Balaidos, where he had already opened the score with a fantastic, bending shot into the corner, the forward was forced to leave at the conclusion of the first half.

Barcelona would suffer a setback if he were to miss the match against Benfica on November 23, which is crucial to their ambitions of reaching the Champions League knockout rounds.
