French forward Antoine Griezmann didn't have a brilliant Barcelona debut. He started against Chelsea in a 2-1 defeat, subbed off at half-time with all his team-mates.

The forward was pumped up from the start and showed glimpses of his quality, even though he didn't have clear chances to beat Kepa. 

Griezmann started as a No 9, where he will battle for a spot with Suarez this season, with Ousmane Dembele and Collado picked either side of him.

The ex-Atletico man's versatility means he can move around in all the different forward positions. 

He played good first time passes and moved the ball well, with purpose, showing his great mobility too.

Griezmann only had two chances, one effort blocked b the defence and another he swung and missed at a Jordi Alba cross.

He was involved in an incident in the 17th minute, when Jorginho two-footed him, but after some treatment was able to shake off the knock to his knee.
