Luis Suarez says it’s going to be a “long, complicated year” for Barcelona after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Granada.

The result leaves the champions still searching for their first away win of the season, and Suarez admitted it was a tough result for Ernesto Valverde’s side.

“It’s a defeat that hurts. We have to analyse a lot of things and be self-critical in order to improve moving forward.

”The game became complicated for us from the off. We were losing almost from the first minute and that made things much more difficult.

”We had a lot of possession of the ball, but we were not convincing and we didn’t create chances.

”We have to accept that we’re obliged to win games and we’re not doing it. There’s a long way to go, but these are the games that can give you the league. It’s the moment to analyse what’s going on. It’s going to be a long, complicated year.”

Barcelona will try to put things right on Tuesday when they return to action against Villarreal at the Camp Nou before heading to Getafe in La Liga on Saturday.
