Luis Suarez has been nothing short of sensational for Barcelona since signing from Liverpool in 2014.

Great things were expected from the 29-year-old upon his £65 million arrival and, as if there was any doubt, he has duly delivered.

In two seasons at the Camp Nou, Suarez has scored 56 La Liga goals and won the title twice, alongside two Copa del Rey's and one Champions League in 2015.

Alongside the great Lionel Messi and Neymar, otherwise known as 'MSN', he has arguably become world football's best striker.

And Suarez showcased his brilliance once again during a pre-season friendly against Leicester City on Wednesday night by scoring a brilliant Suarez-esque goal (see below).


From an inch-perfect Messi pass, the Uruguayan controlled the ball on the right before jinking his way past two defenders - he nutmegged Robert Huth, of course - before firing past Ron-Robert Zieler.

It was what Suarez does best. Throughout his time at Ajax and Liverpool, the striker became renowned for his nutmegs and ability to retain possession when dribbling past defenders, even if the ball looked out of his control.

Barcelona eventually cruised to a 4-2 victory in what was a thrilling encounter.

Luis Enrique's side went 3-0 up before the break thanks to Suarez's strike and a brace from Munir El Haddadi, but Leicester responded in the second half.

New boy Ahmed Musa struck twice for the Foxes in the 47th and 66th minute, the first of which a fine solo effort, but Barcelona's Raja Mujica wrapped up the win with six minutes to play.

Following the entertaining affair, Barcelona boss Enrique expressed his delight at the victory but insisted rebuilding fitness was the ultimate goal at the Friends Arena, Stockholm.

He said: "The priority objective is to get the players back to competition fitness, and things are looking very good in that respect.

"I have every confidence in [Munir]. He is a young and enthusiastic player. He never stops working and always delivers.

"Leicester City were the big surprise in football last season. We played very well in the first half by not giving them any space. In the second half they made two top-class moves and scored two goals out of them."
