Barcelona crushed Eibar 4-0 over the weekend to extend their unbeaten run to a record 36 games.

Turkish international Arda Turan started for Barca and has now won all 14 games in which he has featured since making his debut against Espanyol in the Spanish Cup back in January.

The reigning La Liga champions have scored 52 goals and conceded just nine goals over the 14 games Turan has featured in.

Turan scored his first goal for Barcelona last week in the 5-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano with a flying header.

The 29-year-old winger now has a total of three assists and one goal to his name for Barca since making his debut for the Champıons League title holders.
