Line-ups: Barca-Espanyol

Ousmane Dembele is named as a substitute by Barcelona, who have Luis Suarez back, for tonight's Catalan derby against Espanyol in La Liga.

Dembele is included in a Barca matchday squad for the first time but fails to displace Gerard Deulofeu on the left wing.

Suarez, however, has recovered from a knee injury to once more spearhead the Blaugrana's attacking trident.

Elsewhere for the hosts, Nelson Semedo starts over Sergi Roberto and Aleix Vidal - both of whom are culled - at right-back, while Sergio Busquets returns in central midfield.

Espanyol, meanwhile, hand a debut to former Malaga midfielder Sergi Darder, a season-long arrival from Olympique Lyonnais.
