Former Liverpool idol Luis Suarez was instrumental during Barcelona’s 6-0 win over Getafe.

Former Liverpool idol Luis Suarez put in his best performance of the season as he helped Barcelona destroy Getafe 6-0 at the Nou Camp on Tuesday evening.

The Uruguay international has had to be patient since trading Merseyside for Catalunya last summer, firstly overcoming his ban before integrating himself in the first team.

There were plenty of wayward opinions suggesting the South American superstar wasn’t right for Barca six months ago, though such views can now be laughed at.

Linking up alongside fellow attackers Lionel Messi and Neymar, the trio were at their best on Tuesday as they swept an out of form Getafe aside.

As per the table provided above, Suarez put in arguably his best performance since that memorable Premier League four-goal display against Norwich City with the Reds at Anfield.

Lining up in a yellow kit, perhaps the former Ajax man saw glimpses of the Canaries in Getafe on Tuesday as he ruthlessly ran them ragged – scoring two goals and assisting a further two.

Moreover, Suarez took five shots, recorded three key passes and worked tirelessly up front, completing 35 accurate passes with a success rate of 65.7%.

Since joining the La Liga leaders, the 28-year-old has now featured in 37 games in all competitions, scoring 21 goals and adding a further 13 assists.

The win takes Barca momentarily four points clear at the top of the table as Suarez and co. set their sights set on another treble, and, on current form, who would back against them?
