Suarez double keeps Barcelona unshaken at the top

With the victory, the La Liga toppers maintain their unbeaten run this season and go seven points clear off second-placed Valencia after 12 games.

Suarez broke his five-game goal drought with a scavenger's effort after an Ivan Cuellar error rendered a promising Leganes start redundant, and the hosts' goalkeeper was left helpless by a deflection as the Uruguay worldwide struck again in the second half, with Paulinho tapping in a late third.

Valverde said: "The result was misleading and excessive because Leganes made it hard for us and had a great game, while there were times when we weren't brilliant".

"We try to play well, but it's not always possible and we have to get used to this".

However, his replacement Kevin Gameiro almost grabbed the victor when his lobbed effort was cleared off the line by Raphael Varane. The important thing was to win.

Earlier at Leganes, Barca striker Suarez reaped the benefits of two weeks rest after being left out of Uruguay's internationals and pounced from close range to give Barca the lead in the 28th minute, after Leganes goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar failed to hold a shot from Paco Alcacer.

Moments later, Barcelona had Marc-Andre ter Stegen to thank for keeping them ahead after he saved well from Alexander Szymanowski.

There was one negative for Barca, however, as defender Gerard Pique picked up a fifth yellow card of the season and is suspended for next week's top-of-the-table clash at Valencia, adding to the absence of fellow centre back Javier Mascherano. Suarez's second in the 60th was a rebound shot after Cuellar parried a shot by Lionel Messi.

And on the hour mark, Suarez doubled his side's lead to take his goal tally to five goals in nine league games.

"Maybe 3-0 is a bit excessive; they have contributed so the distance shouldn't be that wide", he said in his post-match news conference.

"We had our opportunities, but in the end we knew that we were playing against the best team in the world, and with very little they can score on you", Leganes midfielder Ruben Perez said.
