David Villa says Barcelona should not get carried away with win over Real Madrid

Barcelona striker David Villa says that the club and their fans should not get carried away with their 5-0 hammering of Real Madrid, as the Catalan giants are only two points clear at the top of La Liga.

2010 FIFA World Cup winner Villa was on the scoresheet twice at the Camp Nou on Monday 29 November as he helped manager Pep Guardiola to maintain his perfect record in the El Clasico match.

His Spain international team-mates Xavi Hernandez and Pedro Rodriquez also netted, as did Spain Under-21 cap Jeffren Suarez.

While Villa was over the mood to find the back of the net twice in his first appearance in an El Clasico game, he was quick to remind his team-mates that they still had a lot of work to do in order to win their third La Liga title in a row.

He told Spanish publication AS: "It was very important to win. We looked for the victory and we succeeded. We wanted to get ahead and secure a lead. And what better way than the way we have done it. We could not have asked for more.

"The team played better, but Madrid made things uncomfortable and we had to overcome their midfield. Now, we are two points clear. We must now continue to work hard as we are only in November. The title wasn't lost prior to the match, and neither is it won. We have an advantage, but we now have to keep on winning." 

As a result of their emphatic victory, Barca are now two points clear of Los Blancos at the top of the league.

Their next opportunity to put more daylight between them and their title rivals will come on Saturday 4 December, when they travel to face Osasuna.
