Fati in, Pedri out: Barça Ideal Line Up to tackle tough October fixtures

Barcelona have a host of tough fixtures coming their way this month, with he first 3 encounters all being home games against Valencia (La Liga), Dynamo Kiev (UCL) and Real Madrid (La Liga).

Thankfully, a few of Barca's injured players are back and will give Ronald Koeman some squad depth ahead of the following fixtures:

Oct 17: Valencia (home)

Oct 20: Dynamo Kiev (home)

Oct 24: Real Madrid (home)

Oct 27: Rayo Vallecano (away)

Oct 31: Alaves (home)


Here's my proposed best starting XI with the return of Ansu Fati.

Ter Stegan; Mingueza, Araujo, Pique, Dest, Gavi, De Jong, Coutinho, Fati, Memphis Depay.

Defence

It may seem a bit too early for Jordi Alba to feature in the next few games, while Sergino dest has been quite decent at left back position lately.

If left to choose one between Eric Garcia and Gerrard Pique, I'd go for the latter (atleast he's more experienced and good in the air, unlike Eric Garcia).

Oscar Mingueza to start at right back as he's a more reliable option than Sergi Roberto.


Midfield

Pedri is not yet full fit, it's best to go with the diamond midfield of Sergio Busquets, Gavi, Frankie De Jong and Phillips Coutinho in the attacking role.


Attack

Depay and Ansu Fati are obviously Barca's best attackers these days. We are yet to see how good Aguero can be due to his lengthy injury issues and lack of games time, creating an element of doubts on the Argentine, so the choice (Memphis and Fati) is quite clear.

What changes would you make this line up and why?
