If the early-season weakness for Barcelona was defense, the current weakness is their wing play.
To be completely honest, none of the Blaugrana wingers are playing that well lately. David Villa is struggling to show why he should start and has not been scoring lately. His pace and touch have also not been present.
Alexis Sanchez and Pedro are also struggling to score. Both are creating chances, but it is time Lionel Messi gets help scoring before the club become too dependent on him.
Cristian Tello may very well be the best winger currently on the team.
The 21-year-old is fast and certainly capable of taking on defenders. His passing is not all there yet, but his scoring ability is beginning to show signs of something wonderful. However, he needs more consistent play to hone his skills.
But, the outstanding winger of the season, is not really a winger at all.
Andres Iniesta has been moved to the left wing over recent months and seems to have gotten even better as a player. He is creating chances and making deadly attacks on the defense.
There really is no guessing who will start on the wings for Barcelona. Every player needs more minutes and frankly no one deserves a consistent starting spot right now.
Iniesta could start on the left wing again, but with Cesc Fabregas out injured, Iniesta is more needed in the midfield. That is, unless 21-year-old Thiago gets a well-deserved start.
