Twitter explodes as magical Lionel Messi scores four in Barcelona's rout of Eibar
Lionel Messi has been in a different kind of form ever since the start of the new league season, the Argentine netted four goals in Barcelona's 6-1 rout of Eibar at the Camp Nou. The poker helped Messi take his league goal tally to 9 goals from only 5 games, while ensuring that the Blaugrana's near perfect La Liga record stays intact.
New signing Paulinho - who has received much flak from the fanbase - scored for the second consecutive game, as did Denis Suarez, with the game being the former's full league debut for Ernesto Valverde's side.
Twitter, as you would expect, didn't hold back and here are the best tweets:
Greatness doesn't peak!
A man possessed!
The record books, they continue to swell...
He will struggle without Neymar they said, he will go berserk, they naver said...
Paulinho deserves the credit!
