Ranking Lionel Messi's five most memorable Barcelona hat tricks

Ernesto Valverde has hailed Lionel Messi following the Barcelona legend's four-goal haul against Eibar.
Ernesto Valverde has hailed Lionel Messi following the Barcelona legend's four-goal haul against Eibar.

Last weekend there was a hat trick in the Catalan derby against Espanyol, and on Tuesday there were four more goals as Barcelona put six past Eibar.

September has not been a bad month for Lionel Messi.

So far this season, he has 12 goals in just eight appearances in all competitions, and his trebles against Espanyol and Eibar took him to 39 hat tricks in total for Barcelona.

Here are five of the most memorable ones:

Lionel Messi beats the Eibar defence for his third of four goals on Tuesday.

Four-goal Messi was perfect as Barcelona cruise to 6-1 win over Eibar

Following their 6-1 thrashing over Eibar, the FC panel heap much deserved praise on Lionel Messi's leadership at Barca.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Lionel Messi scored four goals as Barcelona thumped Eibar 6-1 to make it five consecutive wins to start their La Liga season. There were also goals from Saturday's saviours at Getafe, Paulinho and Denis Suarez, while Eibar's consolation came from Sergi Enrich.

Positives

The major positive is that with Messi in this type of form, not many sides will be able to deal with Barca. Elsewhere, Nelson Semedo continues to really impress at right-back and Paulinho and Denis, for...

Ernesto Valverde must aim to match Zinedine Zidane level in La Liga

Ernesto Valverde says inexperience played a part in the injury that has sidelined Ousmane Dembele for the next four months.

Such has been Zinedine Zidane's "Midas" touch since taking over at Real Madrid in January 2016 that any club wishing to wrest La Liga or the Champions League will need to have a coach who wins one-vs.-one battles with the Frenchman -- before and during matches.

That goes for Diego Simeone, Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte, Unai Emery and, particularly, Ernesto Valverde because they comprise the only other managers, whose teams I can conceive of conquering Europe this season (Simeone and...

Ousmane Dembele's injury provides latest opportunity for Gerard Deulofeu

With Ousmane Dembele set to miss three to four months, the FC crew assess the impact his injury will have on Barcelona.
Shaka Hislop and Ross Dyer delve into the news that Ousmane Dembele will miss up to four months after rupturing a tendon against Getafe on Saturday.
Paulinho struck six minutes from time as Barcelona came from behind to notch their fourth straight La Liga win.

If it's not one thing it's another for Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde. 

Appointed as Luis Enrique's successor at the very end of May, in the time which has followed he's seen Neymar leave for Paris Saint-Germain, a vote of no confidence launched against the club's board and the transfer window close with a failure to either buy or sell particularly sufficiently. 

Perhaps the only thing he has to take his share of the blame for is the 5-1 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid in the Spanish...

Arsenal make progress vs. Chelsea, Barca win again, Neymar vs. Cavani

Steve Nicol says Arsenal would be opting for mediocrity if Arsene Wenger considers dropping Mesut Ozil.

Arsenal went to Stamford Bridge in a fairly binary situation. A poor performance would simply ratchet up the pressure ahead of the club's annual general meeting (with Stan Kroenke on his way across the pond) and cancel the baby steps that were made against Bournemouth. (Given Bournemouth's performance, they really were teeny, tiny baby steps). A result, especially if accompanied by a decent performance, would buy Arsene Wenger time, rekindle a bit of faith in a clearly dejected group and maybe...
