Barcelona 2-1 Sevilla: Paco Alcacer the unlikely double-goal hero for the hosts [Best Tweets]

Barcelona extended their winning run to maintain a four-point lead at the top of the table with a 2-1 win over Sevilla at Camp Nou on Saturday.

Barcelona were made to work hard to maintain their four-point lead atop the La Liga table as a resilient Sevilla side ran them close at Camp Nou. But, Paco Alcacer turned out to be the unlikely hero for the hosts as he struck a goal either side of Guido Pizarro’s headed strike to earn all three points for his side.

With the beleaguered Spaniard overshadowing his partners in attack, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, with his contribution, Twitter was abuzz following the double-goal hero’s exploits on Saturday.

There were also congratulatory messages for Lionel Messi, who made his 600th appearance for Barcelona on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, there are increasing concerns surrounding Luis Suarez’s continued slump in form, with fans asking for Alcacer to replace the struggling Uruguayan up front.
