Suarez and Messi scored two goals each while Neymar scored once to complete 100 goals for the trio during the ongoing season. Barcelona are leading the La Liga standings with 84 points from 34 matches.
"There were many circumstances that make the team practically unstoppable. We had a number of chances and almost all the goals are placed right in the corner," Enrique was quoted as saying by skysports.com on Wednesday.
"It was another day to congratulate the team because these types of games can easily become difficult and we needed to start in the way we did today," he said referring to the Getafe encounter.
Enrique insisted his side would not become complacent despite being on top of the La Liga table five points ahead of arch-rivals Real Madrid, having played a game more. They will take on German champions Bayern Munich in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
"We won't get complacent, we know that we depend on ourselves against a great rival like Real Madrid that will fight for the title until the end. We need to continue so that things continue to go as they have done until now and be very concentrated," he said.
