Luis Suarez: 'It is a privilege to play with Lionel Messi'

Lionel Messi proving his career’s nowhere near done yet says Luis Suarez

"Espanyol fought very well, but we have great players like Messi, who scored three goals, and [Luis] Suarez, who gave everything like the rest of the team".

Lionel Messi scored a hat trick to lead their 5-0 win over crosstown rivals Espanyol on Saturday, making them the only side so far to win their first three games in La Liga.

The hosts eventually bagged a third goal after 67 minutes as Messi completed his hat-trick with a composed finish, after a clever pass from Jordi Alba.

Suarez who shrugged off an injury whilst on worldwide break missed some decent chances, the closest being in the 55th minute when he blazed wide in the six yard box after a cutback from Messi.

Los Blancos were the dominant side through the game, but they were reduced to 10 men late in the second half when Marcelo was shown a straight red card for kicking out.

Espanyol were being outplayed but retained a sporadic threat, with a combination of Pique and Samuel Umtiti diverting Baptistao's 61st-minute shot behind.
