Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is facing another month on the sidelines after suffering a fresh hamstring injury.

The 20-year-old France international picked up the problem during Sunday's 4-2 victory over Real Sociedad, where he appeared as a second-half substitute.

Dembele had only recently returned from almost four months out after suffering a hamstring injury against Gefafe in September, in what was just his third appearance for Barca following his then-club record £96.8million from Borussia Dortmund.

A club statement read: "The injury will mean he will be out for a period of around three to four weeks."
