Winning mentality is our strength, says Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova

"It is very good that we have won all of those games and we are very happy but what makes me happier still is the fact that when we were winning 5-1 we were still pressing and still looking to score," said Vilanova, who felt his players' hunger was the key to their continued success.

Madrid: Tito Vilanova watched his FC Barcelona start to confirm the best ever start to a season by a side in Spain's La Liga and then highlighted his players' will to win.

Lionel Messi scored two more goals as Barca defeated Athletic Club Bilbao 5-1 Saturday at Camp Nou, with the other goals coming from Gerard Pique, Adriano and Cesc Fabregas. The win means Barca have won 13 of their first 14 games this season and have 40 points from a possible 42.

The win sees Barca set a record for the best opening campaign, beating the record set by Real Madrid in the 1991-92 season, which Vilanova's side had equalled last weekend.
