The 20-year-old was on hand at the far post to expertly volley his new side into a first half lead thanks to Benoit Trémoulinas’ cross.

However, this was, bar a 17 minute appearance off the bench against Espanyol, the first time Deulofeu was able to contribute. Gerard Deulofeu scored for Sevilla as Unai Emery’s men continued their impressive start to the season with a 1-0 win against Real Sociedad on Wednesday evening.

He was back on the bench for Sevilla’s win against Cordoba, though, and didn’t come off it. “You have to take it little by little,” Deulofeu said after last week’s 2-0 win over Feyenoord.
