Manchester City send a cheeky message to Arsenal after Champions League draw

Arsene Wenger

Poor Arsenal never have any luck in the Champions League draw...

Over the past couple of years English clubs have had a bit of a nightmare in the Champions League – especially the knockout phase.

In last year's competition, no English side made it past the round of 16 after the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal paid the price for finishing second in their group. 

While City learned their lesson and managed to finish top of their group, Arsenal have once again finished second, meaning they would be drawn against the top seeds in the Champions League draw.

And that is exactly what happened. The Gunners were unfortunate enough to be drawn against the absolutely ruthless Barcelona. 

As you can imagine, Arsenal fans were not too impressed but City decided to take some time to send a message to the Gunners: 

City had to face Barcelona in the past two seasons so they know all about facing the Catalan giants.

The last time Arsenal faced the Spaniards was back in the 2010-11 competition. Despite winning the first-leg 2-1, the Gunners were thumped 3-1 in the second leg as Robin van Persie was controversially sent off for shooting after the whistle had gone. 

Do you think Arsenal have a chance against Barcelona? ...Really?
