Ansu Fati has been urged to be full of confidence when he returns to Albion action.

The forward on loan from Barcelona has been in and out of the Seagulls side so far – with some exciting flashes of what his best level could be.

Ansu, currently away with the Spain squad, played the first three-quarters of the 2-2 draw at Marseille but just a few minutes against Liverpool.

He will look to kick on as club action resumes.

Albion head coach Roberto De Zerbi told The Argus: “I think Ansu didn’t play bad in Marseille. He could have scored two goals, one with the header and the other if Welbeck had passed the ball, no?

“It was a difficult game, especially in the first half - for us and not only for Ansu.

“Ansu needs to play, needs to feel confidence, needs to make mistakes, but he is an important player.

“He didn’t play a lot of games last season and we have to help him to improve, to play better, and he has to help the team to win the game.”

Replays suggested Ansu would have been given offside had Welbeck set him up with an open goal at Stade Velodrome but he has been getting into some great positions and scored at Aston Villa.

He received a late call by Spain due to injuries but was an unused sub in Thursday night’s win over Scotland.
