Luis Enrique has hailed the spectacular Neymar for his jaw-dropping brilliance to score his brace and Barcelona’s third goal in the 3-0 win over Villarreal.
Both Neymar and Suarez shoulder the responsibility of inspiring Barcelona in the absence of injured Messi.
And the attacking duo are doing a good job of it and were instrumental in the 3-0 win over Villarreal at Camp Now.
And Neymar’s brilliant third goal is the pick of the bunch, as he lifted the ball over the approaching Jaime Costa before volleying it past Areola.
But the outrageous piece of skill came as no surprise to Barca coach Luis Enrique, who said after the game: “We are talking about a unique player, special. We have to look at his work.”
Barca’s win lifts them three points clear of Real Madrid ahead of the capital city club’s trip to Sevilla later on Sunday, and Luis Enrique added: “That the team is growing and improving in key aspects of the game is obvious.”
Neymar, meanwhile, was typically cool when asked about his goal-of-the-season contender.
“I thought about the move in advance and it came off,” he said.
“We played really well, we created a lot of chances throughout the game.
“The whole team played well. We have to carry on like this. We played well against Villarreal, who are a great team.
“I’m happy with my contribution to the team but I think I can improve even more. Together with my team-mates, we have to keep growing.
“We have a break from the league now to think about the Clasico, but we also have to play well for our national teams.”
