Neymar fired an ominous warning to the rest of La Liga on Sunday by claiming that Barcelona’s “spectacular” attacking triumvirate are only going to get better. The Brazilian combined wonderfully with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez throughout Sunday’s 5-2 rout of Athletic Bilbao, with all three forwards on target at San Mames. Neymar played down talk that he and his team-mates are are becoming unplayable, but acknowledged that they are capable of achieving great things together.
“I don’t believe that we’re unstoppable but we do a lot of work to help the team,” the striker told Canal Plus. “I’m sure that we will win more and more, and will get better. “We are going well but we need to keep doing the things we’re doing. We’re very happy because we are performing how we want to on the pitch right now.
“There are still many games left, though, and the season is long. But we’re happy to be among the leaders. “Now we only have to focus on what we’re doing. We have to keep working on the pitch but what we did today was spectacular.” Barca’s ninth successive victory in all competitions saw them move to within a point of Liga leaders Real Madrid, who were hammered 4-0 by city rivals Atletico on Saturday.
