Barcelona were once considered the kings of Europe, they conquered Spanish football, as well as European football, and nothing or no one was able to stop. The Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, and Carles Puyol era was one of a kind in footballing history. However, they would not have achieved such great heights had it not been for some of their absolutely world-class players. Next season, Barcelona could have a good season, however, they will need some of their players to step up and make the difference.

Yes, football is very much a team game, and the team cannot win if everyone is not doing their part of the work. The chemistry, morale, and results all depend on the team, and everyone is responsible for the end result, even the non-playing staff. However, every team also has their star performers, the ones who can make the difference during a bad game, the ones who can easily turn around a result, and Barca have quite a few of them.

Last season, Lionel Messi was arguably their most important player, as he scored goals after goals to help his team in the league, as well as help them win a trophy. He was definitely Barca’s most clutch player however, there were a few more players who made stand-out performances as well. The team needs to perform a lot better next season, and one way they will do that is by being consistent.

Consistency was a big issue for the Catalans, as they cruised past a team in one weekend, and would then struggle to score a goal in the next weekend. Players such as Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann were too inconsistent in front of the goal, leaving Messi to finish the job. However, next season is different, and the players will need to have a different attitude as well. Thus, here are the five most crucial players in Barcelona, who can really make a difference next season.
