Barcelona forward David Villa has talked about his happiness after his recent contributions have helped the Catalan side to two impressive victories.

After scoring the third against AC Milan in a 4-0 win last week, Villa scored and assisted Lionel Messi twice as Barca ran out 3-1 winners against Rayo Vallecano last night.

Speaking to Barcelona's official website after the game he said: "I’m happy to help the team with goals and assists.

"I don’t normally set up that many goals and I really feel valuable having done so in these last couple of matches."

Villa, the highest goalscorer in the history of the Spanish national team, has contributed 11 assists and scored eight goals in the league this season.

The forward has also claimed he is in perfect condition and that he is happy with his return to form.

He said: "Physically, I’m at my best – I’ve got over all those little problems that were bothering me and I’m happy to be feeling fine again.

"I’m pleased to get to this stage of the season scoring goals and getting plenty of game time."

Villa, rumoured to be a transfer target for Arsenal, also claimed that Barcelona's two victories have boosted morale in the squad and believes the results are down to the effort put in by the team during training.

"The lads are happy with these two good results, especially Tuesday’s," he added.

"We showed on the pitch all the work we had been doing and between us we carried it off."
