LONDON (AP) -- Lionel Messi and Barcelona are back on top of The Associated Press global soccer poll.

Barcelona edged Liverpool by three points to take team of the week honors after routing Osasuna 7-0 in the Spanish league. Messi leads the player vote for the second time this season after scoring a hat trick in that victory and becoming Barcelona's all-time leading scorer with 371 goals.

Liverpool was second in the team poll after a 3-0 win over Manchester United in the Premier League, and Steven Gerrard was second to Messi after scoring two penalties in that match.
