Lionel Messi's highlights for October are out of this world

A video compilation on Twitter has shown that Lionel Messi's highlights for October have been out of this world.

The Argentinian has enjoyed his best run of form since joining Paris Saint-Germain last year as he's finally been able to emulate some of the form we came to accustomed to over the years at Barcelona.

Firstly, we can look at his statistics: 23 goal contributions in only 16 games is scintillating form to say the least.

Anyone can tell he's having a great season from his stats, but watching him will really demonstrate just how high his levels have been this season; it's a joy to see him in this type of form.

Across the seven minutes and 50 seconds we see Messi produce long shots, stunning dribbles, outside-of-the-boot finishes, free-kicks and much more.

It obviously includes his powerful strike from distance yesterday against Troyes, as he helped to inspire a comeback with PSG running out 4-3 winners in the end.

Perhaps his best performance came against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League earlier this week - with the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner producing two goals and two assists in a flawless performance.

Or you can simply pick out one of numerous games this season - it's been that type of campaign for the little magician so far.

Most players could only dream of having a career highlights package as good as this, never mind a month's highlights.

On top of that, we've seen Kylian Mbappe and Neymar also produce some of their best football of recent years.

The famed trio have finally begun to click and they've been as devastating as many people believed they would be when Messi joined the French giants.

In fact, they've combined for an incomprehensible 67 goal contributions between them and it's still only October.

With the World Cup on the horizon, it's no surprise that all three are in incredible form ahead of the tournament.

After all, it may be Messi's last chance to win the famous trophy and if he does, then the GOAT debate (if there ever was one) will be finally settled forever.
