The improvement in Manchester United since the recruitment of Bruno Fernandes has been sensational, and the Portugal international was once again their Man of the Match against Bournemouth, scoring one goal and assisting a further two.
After the Cherries took a surprise lead, he was instrumental in United bouncing back quickly, assisting the equalising goal for Mason Greenwood 29 minutes in with a slid pass to the left of the box while off balance.
Shortly after the break, he doubled his assist tally with another pass out to the left, this time for Anthony Martial.
Overall, he had 90 touches of the ball and sent 10 crosses into the area, with the latter stat bettered only by Manchester City's Oleksandr Zinchenko this weekend.
Messi was once again the orchestrator for the Blaugrana and assisted two of the goals as well as having one himself disallowed after VAR deemed Arturo Vidal to be offside in the build up.
Both assists came in a first half, which saw Barca play some mesmerising attacking football. His first was for Suarez, as he went on a signature run through the middle before laying the ball into the path of the Uruguayan for a magnificent curled finish.
Then, any theories of a rift between him and Griezmann were silenced for a while as the pair embraced after a backheel from Messi set up the former Atletico man for an outrageous, chipped finish from the edge of the box.
He enjoyed 113 touches of the ball which was more than anyone in this round of La Liga fixtures.
The left-back saw plenty of the ball down the left-hand side, touching it 117 times which was more than anyone in Serie A this weekend. He sent seven crosses into the area and completed an impressive 80/87 passes to team-mates.
Defensively, he won 6/9 duels, 100% of his attempted tackles, and 100% of his aerial duels.
It was via one of the aforementioned crosses which enabled him to assist the opener, as he curled a sensational delivery into the centre of the box for Jose Callejon to slide a finish beyond the keeper.
In a team full of pass masters, he had the second-highest amount of touches in the game behind Zinchenko and the second-highest in the league as a whole. It was the quality of his possession, too, though, as 30 of his 78 passes were sent into the final third.
He had to be vigilant of the Southampton counter, though, and was comfortable in his defensive duties, winning 11/17 duels and 4/7 tackles as well as making 11 ball recoveries, two interceptions, and three clearances.
The young forward was again superb for United at the weekend, scoring two goals in the 5-2 win over Bournemouth.
After the visitors opened the scoring, he quickly equalised with a rifled left-footed strike into the top right corner with his left foot. Then he scored with his right foot this time from the right of the box, with both strikes well out of the reach of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
