Watch: Sergio Busquets Takes Four Sevilla Players Out The Game With One Simple Touch

Sergio Busquets is a special player who is perhaps not appreciated enough by football fans. And at the weekend, he produced a passage of play that demonstrates just how gifted and intelligent he is.

Playing as Barcelona's deep-lying midfielder, you have to be extremely comfortable on the ball and always available - even if the goalkeeper feeds you the ball under intense pressure from the opposition.

That's exactly what happened in Barca's 4-1 win over Sevilla when Marc-Andre Ter Stegen passed to Busquets from a goal-kick.

Four players were pressing high up the pitch, including two closing him down rapidly, but the Spain international dealt with the situation perfectly.

With one, simple yet effective touch, he bypassed the press and moved the ball on to start a Blaugrana attack. Not many players would be have the confidence to take such a risk but as we've seen in his career, Busquets is no ordinary footballer.

He's made Sam Allardyce look a bit silly there after the former England boss essentially said Eric Dier was as good as Busquets, before he backtracked on his comments.

The 30-year old is just resistant to pressure and has been fundamental to Barca's swashbuckling football ever since he broke into the side.

Back in February, he was showered with praise from former England players Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand after producing a masterclass away at Chelsea.

In analysing his performance at Stamford Bridge, the trio summed up just how good Busquets is and how difficult he is to play against.

The most underrated player in world football? Quite possibly.
