Sergio Busquets' midfield masterclass against Chelsea last month was breathtakingly good, wasn't it?
It hit me harder than ever before. Everything is so easy for the Spaniard. The bloke definitely has eyes in the back of his head - it's the only explanation.
He sees things seconds before anybody else and Spanish teammate Saul Niguez has pretty much agreed with everything I've just said, but he's actually played with the man himself.
Steven Gerrard said he was an "absolute nightmare" to play against because you couldn't get near him, while Rio Ferdinand claimed he could play in a pair of velvet slippers and perform.
When you watch him play, he always has a picture in his head of what he wants to do, even before that killer pass is made.
Steven Gerrard on playing against Sergio Busquets (BT Sport): "In the end you just stop pressing him, because it's so frustrating. You just can't get near him."- Tom Williams (@tomwfootball) February 20, 2018
To sum up his time on the pitch against Chelsea, the 29-year-old completed the most passes (128), the most touches (152) and made the most tackles throughout (6).
It was a vintage performance from Busquets - something that Barcelona fans are all to use too, but some underestimate his ability. He might have just changed your opinion for the better on that night at Stamford Bridge.

He really is something else.
