After Barcelona's 6-1 destruction of Rayo Vallecano, coach Luis Enrique gave his usual post-match interview, in which he showed how happy he is with his team, but also conscious of how difficult it will be to maintain the La Liga lead. Below you can find a few highlights of his answers:

The victory

"We knew it would be tough from the outset and that if we could beat their pressure we'd have scoring chances."

"Seeing what they were giving us in midfield, we went with Xavi and Iniesta inside and they gave us a lot of chances to get the ball to our forwards.

Moving into first place

"We're elated, but the objective is to be leading at the end of the season. I already said that everybody could lose a game, so we have to keep playing well and win every match."

"It's heavy having to win every single match. Each game is more important than the last."

"The situation we're in is the fruit of our collective effort. We're where we want to be but there are lots of teams that what to be here too."

Proper names

"Suárez and Messi are having more and more chemistry, and today we all saw what they bring to the team."

"I like Rakitic wherever he plays on the field. He always knows what to do with the ball and is one of the best signings we've ever had."

"Piqué has always known how to score, above all on set plays. It's a perfect solution for games when our opponents collapse defensively."
