Luis Suarez has revealed Jeremy Mathieu's new nickname at Barcelona

Barcelona's team spirit is undoubtedly sky high following the top class start to the season they have enjoyed. 

The Catalans have already netted 25 goals in all competitions, with seven coming in their midweek Champions League thrashing of Celtic, and have won all but one fixture, in which they suffered a shock 2-1 home loss to Alaves.

However, Barcelona immediately made amends for their league defeat last weekend with a 5-1 demolition of Leganes on Saturday. The famous MSN trio also set a new record, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all netting in the first half.

Following their win several of the club's players took to Instagram, as they made the journey back to the Catalan capital, with Andres Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic and Arda Turan all taking to Instagram for a selfie. 

However, Suarez caused a little confusion - certainly amongst his non-Spanish speaking fans - when he posted a selfie with teammate Jeremy Mathieu.

The former Liverpool striker wrote: "With the big Colo, three good points to keep going."

Colo, short for colorado, means coloured in Spanish, referring to the Frenchman's hair and face colour - in contrast to that of the Spanish and South American players in the squad.

And it's no surprise that the player seemed in such good spirits in his post. The Uruguay international has already netted seven goals for Barcelona this season, including a hat-trick in the club's first league game of the season.

He, Messi and Neymar have seemingly picked up where they left off last season, and it seems inevitable plenty of trophies will be brought back to the Camp Nou this season.

Will Luis Suarez exceed his goals tally from last season for Barcelona? Give your opinion in the comment box below.
