Barcelona’s superb start to the season has seen many players getting the plaudits with Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Samuel Umtiti rightly praised, along with Lionel Messi.

Meanwhile, Sergio Busquets continues to go about being the best in the business in his position, with little in the way of headlines.

He also ended it in pretty fine style too with his performance in the Clasico, particularly the role he played in Luis Suarez’s opening goal.

While Mateo Kovacic will probably be still having nightmares about that one, check out just how crucial Busquets’ play was before he sent Ivan Rakitic scampering free.
