Title not won in November, says Barca boss

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola was keen to quell any title talk after his in-form side opened up a three-point gap at the top of La Liga.

Barca made the most of high-flying rivals Real Madrid, Villarreal and Valencia all dropping points this weekend by defeating Recreativo Huelva 2-0 to put daylight between themselves and the chasing pack.

That was a ninth successive league win for the freescoring Catalan giants who are looking unstoppable at present, but Guardiola knows there is still a long way to go.

"They are three points which help give us strength, but no league is won in November. What it means is that we are top for another week, and if we are not attentive to our rivals they could close up on us again," he said.

"Now we need to rest, prepare for the game against Getafe and continue fighting."

Barca have made a habit of destroying teams early on in matches this season, but they had to wait until the 51st minute to make the breakthrough against a Recre side that are now second-bottom of the standings following this weekend's results.

That opener was scored by Lionel Messi, and substitute Seydou Keita then sealed a hard-earned triumph with Barca's second late on.

"It was a very important victory in a very even game, as expected, because Recreativo - since the arrival of Lucas Alcaraz - are a team who concede few goals and are very organised, as they showed on this occasion," added Guardiola.

Barca are now three points clear of second-placed Villarreal, who were held 2-2 by Malaga, and five points above of Valencia and Madrid, who each lost on Saturday night against Sporting Gijon and Real Valladolid, respectively.

It was almost the perfect weekend for Barca, but Dani Alves believes they just need to keep concentrating on what they are doing and not be distracted by what is happening elsewhere.

"What we must do is focus on ourselves. We knew the results of the rest of our rivals, but we keep them to one side. We do not focus on them, we are thinking more about what we are doing," he said.
