Barcelona coach Setien happy rotating attack for win at Valladolid

Barcelona coach Quique Setien was happy to rotate his attack for their 1-0 win at Real Valladolid.

Luis Suarez was one who did get a rest, starting the game on the bench, but he came on for Antoine Griezmann at half-time.

"It's good to give him a rest," Setien said about the Uruguayan.

"Suarez had played five full games in a row and had to rest at some point.

"[Griezmann] came off because of some [injury] problems.

"He asked to come off himself.

"We'll see [what's wrong with him]."

The win sees Barcelona close the gap to Real Madrid to one point at the top of the table, so are they doing enough to win the title?

"We're doing enough to be better than where we are," Setien continued.

"I don't know if [it's enough] to win LaLiga because [Real Madrid] are winning all their games.

"We've done enough [against Valladolid] and we've created lots of chances and we weren't clinical enough in the end."
