Barcelona's first team have begun La Liga 2013/14 in sparkling fashion

Barcelona have begun their 2013/14 La Liga campaign in some style.

Any doubts as to the appointment of Gerardo Martino have been quickly dispelled with the Argentine already having the team playing in his own image.

The high pressing game that was very evident in the Pep Guardiola era has returned, and Martino's sensible rotation policy has been well received in all quarters.

A record opening day 7-0 victory over Levante was the perfect introduction, quickly followed by Martino's first trophy via a hard-fought away goals victory in the Supercopa against Atletico Madrid.

It showed everyone that this team has guts as well as guile. 

A single goal victory away at Malaga and a too-close-for-comfort win in the Mestalla with Valencia making a real game of it after Barca raced into a three goal lead, has seen the Blaugrana top the La Liga table with a three-from-three win record.

Let's take a look at how the players have begun the season.
