FC Barcelona have 16 shutouts in 30 games so far this year. They have scored 14 goals on set plays and have a six-game winning streak in the league after the 4–0 victory against Almería. But despite the numbers, Luis Enrique is not satisfied: "The goal is always to improve and we are in the process. The players are aware that they have very good numbers, but you can always improve," he said.

Check out what else Luis Enrique had to say in his post-game press conference:

"We controlled the game and we didn’t suffer much. Almería let us attack on the wings and we took advantage," said the coach, who also praised the team’s intensity. "To me, we played at a very high level. We just slowed up a bit when the match was practically over … overall it was a match that will strengthen us for the next one," he said.

Luis Enrique also talked about Sergi Roberto, Neymar, Xavi and Pedro.

"It was nice to let Neymar rest because he’s the only international player that hasn’t rested. And I want Pedro in good form for the home stretch of the season."

"Sergi Roberto is fantastic. He’s always ready because he trains as if he were a starter. I am delighted with the way he played tonight."

"Xavi has the respect and love of everyone at Camp Nou and anyone who’s passionate about football.”
