Barcelona's start to the year has been spectacular. Luis Enrique has achieved eight wins and one draw in January, a record unmatched at the club since Pep Guardiola's team managed it in 2009.
The first game of the month did not go well, a frustrating goalless draw with Espanyol at the Cornella-El Prat Stadium, and as well as playing them twice more, they also faced Athletic Club three times.
Atletico Madrid and Malaga were the other opponents in a tough month, at least on paper.
Here are the results, and Barcelona's four best players:
Espanyol 0-0 Barcelona (La Liga)
Barcelona 4-1 Espanyol (Copa del Rey)
Barcelona 4-0 Granada (La Liga)
Espanyol 0-2 Barcelona (Copa del Rey)
Barcelona 6-0 Athletic Bilbao (La Liga)
Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Barcelona (Copa del Rey)
Malaga 1-2 Barcelona (La Liga)
Barcelona 3-1 Athletic Bilbao (Copa del Rey)
Barcelona 2-1 Atletico Madrid (La Liga)
