Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova is ready to start Gerard Deulofeu in tonight's Copa tie with Alaves.

Deulofeu also saw Champions League action last week at Spartak Moscow.

"He is a player with a lot to offer, but he still needs to improve a lot before he can form part of the Barça first team. We have to see how he adapts to games like these. He is still very, very young," said Vilanova.
