Lionel Messi's hat trick in Barcelona's clasico win against Real Madrid gave voters an easy choice in the individual and team categories for the Associated Press weekly football poll.

Messi received 206 points out of a possible 210 from the panel of 21 voters, while Barcelona got 202.

Chelsea was second after it thrashed London rival Arsenal 6-0 in Arsene Wenger's 1,000th game in charge, and Luis Suarez's hat trick in Liverpool's 6-3 win at Cardiff earned him runner-up in the player vote, with his side ranked third.
