Barcelona coach Luis Enrique says he is not worried about a lack of goals from striker Neymar.

The Brazilian scored the most recent of his 17 league goals this season for the La Liga leaders in their 5-0 win over Levante on 15 February.

"I am not worried at all," said Enrique. "We are talking about an outstanding player.

"From what I see in training I am sure his scoring streak will soon return and he will be back on top form."

Barca are four points ahead of second-placed Real Madrid in the table, and Neymar's next chance to add to his tally could be against relegation-threatened Almeria at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.

"Now he is helping us in a less spectacular way, less visible for you," Enrique added, "but he gives the team a lot of things that I consider important."
