Cesc Fabregas hailed two-goal Barcelona star Lionel Messi after victory over Racing Santander.

Messi struck both goals in the 2-0 win.

Cesc declared: "He's a different from any other player in the world, it's a pleasure to play with him, having him in the team, because he gives you that extra confidence that a title winning side needs.

"He's a humble player, hard working, he loves football. He deserves everything that's happening to him."
