Lionel Messi's week has been littered with awards. After the Barcelona captain scooped his sixth Ballon' d'Or award in Paris on Monday night, today, the Argentine striker was named as the best player in LaLiga for the month of November.

Despite the Catalan club just playing three league games in the month, Messi was instrumental in both wins and the surprise defeat away to Levante in match-day 12 as Valverde's men fell 3-1 with Messi bagging the sole goal for Barça.

It was a matter of business as usual the following week as Celta Vigo were on the wrong side of a 4-1 drubbing at Camp Nou with the Barcelona captain bagging three of the four on the night. Away to Leganes on November 23rd, the Catalans left with maximum points in a game of attrition against the struggling "Cucumber Harvesters" with the Argentine delivering the assist to propel Barcelona to a 1-2 win.
