Visca Barcelona! The Catalan club completely dominate The Guardian's Top Ten footballers of 2013

'Tis the season of yearly round ups and The Guardian's list of 'The 100 best footballers for 2013' is a Christmas cracker.

The paper asked their 15-strong international panel of experts to name their top players in action this year and rank them in order of preference. Unsurprisingly, Barcelona's brilliant squad features quite heavily, with a certain miniscule Maestro bagging the top spot.
