VIDEO: Suarez in superb assist as Barca win first trophy of season

Suarez Liverpool 3

The former Liverpool man showed his class in Barcelona's Copa Catalunya win over Espanyol.

Liverpool fans are used to seeing Luis Suarez pulling off the outstanding and the skilful during his time at the club, and it appears the forward is wasting little time in demonstrating his flair at Barcelona, with a wonderful assist for Gerard Pique's goal in the Copa Catalunya win over Espanyol.

The Uruguayan demonstrated superb skill to turn on a sixpence in the box, before scooping a chip over the onrushing Pau Lopez and towards the back post where former Manchester United Pique defender was waiting to head into an empty goal. Pique acknowledged the assist as he celebrated, pointing to his new teammate as the rest of the Barca side rushed to congratulate him.

Though Espanyol equalised through a Anaitz Arbilla free kick, Barcelona won the 2014-15 title on penalties with Suarez already substituted off the pitch.

Barca have now won the last three Copa Catalunya trophies, which, as the name suggests, is a tournament purely for teams from Catalonia. Barcelona and Espanyol are the two sole La Liga representatives from the region, so are unsurprisingly the most successful teams to take part.

Suarez's impressive 45 minute spell for the La Liga giants helps him build up his fitness after he made his first appearance for Barcelona in Saturday's 3-1 defeat against Real Madrid. Though the former Liverpool man set up Neymar's opening goal, it was clear that the 27-year old was lacking much of the vigour that is usually an integral part of his game.

Having been snubbed in the running for the Ballon d'Or despite winning the Premier League awards for best player last season, there is every chance the striker will be working extra hard to ensure he is a success at Barcelona, and he will likely get a chance to impress against Celta Vigo on Saturday, his first game at the Nou Camp.
