Philippe Coutinho ensured Andres Iniesta had a storybook ending to his Barcelona career as the Blaugrana overcame Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou.

Andres Iniesta pressed the big red button and the fireworks filled the Catalan sky, fireworks no-one anticipated nine months ago. No one expected Iniesta, for starters, to be walking away from Barcelona at the end of the same season in which he signed a lifetime contract. Few expected the Arctic Monkeys would be blared into a lit-up Camp Nou either, as pyrotechnics illustrated Barca's third domestic double in four years.

Following his record-breaking season, the FC crew debate whether Mohamed Salah has surpassed Neymar as the best player after Messi and Ronaldo.

We tabulated the votes from all our global editors throughout the 2017-18 Player Power Rankings to see who had the best season of them all. Could anyone match Lionel Messi's magic?

1. Lionel Messi

Why he's here: Messi played all over the pitch for Barca this season, in a campaign in which the Blaugrana did the Liga and Copa del Rey double, and still managed to win Europe's Golden Shoe race with 34 goals in La Liga; across all competitions, that number rose to 47, and he chipped in 21 assists...

BARCELONA -- A Philippe Coutinho wonder strike was the difference as Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 1-0 on Sunday to send Andres Iniesta off with one last win.

Iniesta, making his 674th and final appearance, for Barca was substituted in the 81st minute with his side already in the lead but his name rang around Camp Nou until the final whistle.

The adjectives to describe Andres Iniesta's 22-year career with Barcelona are endless as he announces he'll leave the club at the end of the season.

A tear began to run down Xavi Hernandez's cheek. A Barcelona without Andres Iniesta? He didn't even want to think about it. But he has to. There was a time when you thought of Barca and you thought of Xavi and Iniesta. Xaviesta. But Xavi left the office three years ago and now, after 22 years at Camp Nou, it's time for his old desk-mate to say goodbye as well.

And as he did say goodbye, at a glitzy farewell event organised by the club on Friday, Xavi began to cry. The former Barca midfielder's...
