Barcelona looked rarely troubled at home against Villarreal, with their star players delivering for a 4-1 win.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Three thoughts from Barcelona's 4-1 victory over Villarreal in La Liga on Saturday.

1. Barcelona stay top with Villarreal win

This was supposed to be the game in which Barcelona could come unstuck. But by the time the final whistle blew, Villarreal -- who boast La Liga's second-best defence -- had conceded four and were perhaps grateful they hadn't conceded more. Lionel Messi scored twice and Luis Suarez and Neymar were also on target as manager Luis Enrique's side won 4-1, racking...

One Dos Santos heats up as the other cools down in Mexico reckoning

Jonathan dos Santos is now a key player for Villarreal.

Whether it be in one of Europe's top leagues or in Liga MX, the current season is quickly drawing to a close. And that means there is only a limited amount of time for players to impress Mexico national team manager Juan Carlos Osorio.

Mexicans in Europe: Jonathan dos Santos on song for Villarreal

Jonathan dos Santos
Jonathan dos Santos was instrumental as Villarreal overcame Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Andres Guardado and Hector Moreno were once again superb for PSV Eindhoven, Porto gained a big win without their Mexican contingent, and Guillermo Ochoa had another busy day in goal.

Here's a look back at the Heroes and Villains for the Mexicans in Europe:


Thanks to a well-timed cross from Jonathan dos Santos, Roberto Soldado was able to provide the game-winning goal for Villarreal during Sunday's 1-0 win over Celta Vigo. Although the assist will technically go to Mateo Musacchio, who helped...

Manchester United signing Eric Bailly: 5 things to know about the Villarreal star

Eric Bailly
Eric Bailly could be set to join Manchester United.

Eric Bailly has many of the potential qualities that new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has often favoured in defenders.

The versatile Villarreal star is 6-foot-1, strong and assertive -- which will be useful in the Premier League -- and this season he helped the Spanish club qualify for the Champions League, as they finished fourth, while also reaching the Europa League semifinals.

Eric Bailly has the talent and ability to reach the top with Manchester United

Eric Bailly
Eric Bailly's rapid rise through Spain has him closing in on a move to Manchester United.

Manchester United are interested in 22-year-old Villarreal central defender Eric Bailly, who has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence since making his debut in La Liga back in October 2014.

Bailly's fee is expected to be around £30 million but one thing that would need sorting out is the role Bailly's former club Espanyol will play in any transfer. The Ivorian had played only five first-team games for the Barcelona-based side when Villarreal swooped to sign him two years ago.
