Lionel Messi has had another brilliant season and it was perhaps fitting that it was his hat-trick that secured Barcelona the league title against Deportivo on Sunday.

The goals mean he’s now scored 32 in the league this season and he also tops the assists charts and well just about everything else.

In fact those good folk at Opta have been keeping count of all the things that Messi has the most of this season, and it makes for a pretty incredible list. Check it out:

There’s an argument that this is Messi’s best ever season. He may have scored more in previous campaigns but with Neymar gone, Ousmane Dembele injured for most of the season and Luis Suarez having struggled at times, he’s often had to do it all himself.

Of course choosing Messi’s best ever season is tough because they are all generally amazing, and this season isn’t quite over yet either with the World Cup in Russia to come.
