Barcelona stay perfect in the Champions League group stage after a 4-0 victory over Manchester City at Camp Nou. Despite the big result, it wasn't a great performance from the Blaugrana, but Lionel Messi took over, scoring a hat-trick and dominating the match to give his team a key victory and take home the match ball.
As it's usually the case after a victory, the Blaugrana took to Twitter following the win to share their happiness with their millions of followers. Here's a collection of Barça players' reactions on social media:

Luis Enrique doesn't do Twitter, but he gave a press conference after the game to comment on what happened, and as expected he hailed Lionel Messi's performance and hat-trick, as well as Claudio Bravo's error and red card, which had a big impact on the result:
“He was decisive. He was involved in all the game’s key moments. Messi finishes as if he were playing on the school playground. It doesn’t matter if he’s coming off an injury. It’s just the way he processes the game.
“There were some big errors made in the game and that’s huge in matches featuring two very good teams. The little details decide the game.
“Umtiti played very well at right centre back, which he did before with France’s U-21 team.
“City is a team that’s constantly changing things up during the game. It’s tough to play against them. City were good until the end of the game; the sending off changed the match.
“If you win the way you asked your team to play, it feels even better.”
