1) Luis Suarez (Barcelona) – 8.61

The former Liverpool star was a constant menace and thorn in Real Madrid’s side right from the start of the match at the Santiago Bernabeu. Suarez’s moment proved too hot to handle for centre-back pairing Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane and he opened the scoring after 11 minutes. The Uruguayan latched onto a delicious through ball from young gun Sergi Roberto to comfortably tuck home his 10th La Liga goal of the season. He then added Barcelona’s fourth late on, converting a chance made by returning substitute Lionel Messi.

2) Andres Iniesta (Barcelona) – 8.45

The Spain star was the chief architect of Barcelona’s tireless and creative midfield, making the away side tick and move the ball into dangerous areas at every opportunity. Iniesta, 31, is relishing his role as club captain and was sublime throughout, setting up Neymar and Barcelona’s second goal of the 4-0 win with an accurate through ball before getting on the scoresheet himself with a powerful drive. In truth, on any other day, the maestro would have topped the Valora Futbol ratings.

3) Neymar (Barcelona) – 8.37

In the absence of Lionel Messi, the Brazilian star is going from strength to strength and looks like a world-beater at the moment. Neymar combined brilliantly with strike partner Suarez throughout and was involved in the 24-pass move which led to Barcelona’s opening goal. The 23-year-old, who was labelled by Real Madrid legend Roberto Carlos as the ‘most impressive player in the world’ after the match, converted Barca’s second with a neat finish and perhaps once again proved there is someone who can fill Messi’s boots at the Nou Camp.

4) Claudio Bravo (Barcelona) – 7.87 

Claudio Bravo had wayward Real Madrid finishing to thank for not having the busiest of nights at the Santiago Bernabeu but he helped Barcelona keep their first clean sheet in twelve El Clasicos. However, he did have one world-class save to make – denying Cristiano Ronaldo from point-blank range with a header which could have swung a bit of momentum back in Real Madrid’s favour. The Chilean has proved he is a safe pair of hands and will be a key figure in Barca’s second consecutive treble-winning pursuit.

5) Sergi Roberto (Barcelona) – 7.54

The diminutive Spaniard is the new kid off the block for Barcelona and he announced himself properly to the world stage with an excellent performance against Real Madrid. Versatile, Roberto can operate at either right-back or right-wing and laid on Suarez’s opener with a precise pass. At just 23, he has a big future ahead of him and is likely to feature regularly for Luis Enrique’s men between now and the rest of the season.
