Barcelona moved to the summit of La Liga as goals from Antoine Griezmann, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez earned them victory at Eibar.

They were on their way to a fifth successive win in all competitions in the 13th minute when Griezmann fired low past goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic.

Suarez had an effort ruled out for offside after the break before Argentine Messi slotted in the second.

Messi then provided a square ball to Suarez who tapped in the third.

It was a unselfish gesture from the 32-year-old forward having forsaken an almost certain 17th league goal in 10 games against these opponents.

The champions’ second-half dominance was in great contrast to the opening period when they repeatedly failed to stop Eibar getting behind them on the wings.

However, the only occasion Marc-Andre ter Stegen's goal was threatened was when Pedro Leon swept a 15-yard shot over the bar.

Moments after that miss France World Cup winner Griezmann gave Barca the lead when his shot went in off the post.

The visitors went up the gears after the break. Suarez had a goal disallowed before Messi finished off a move in the area involving his Uruguayan strike partner and Griezmann.

The trio combined again for the third when summer signing Griezmann put Messi through, who laid a gift of a pass to Suarez.

There was one sour note for Barcelona, who lost Sergi Roberto to a knee injury at half-time. It was later revealed that the 27-year-old Spanish full-back suffered ligament damage. (Reuters)
