The exciting and pacy Spain international knows a thing or two about getting the better of the Catalan giants for his time spent in La Liga with previous club Sevilla.

And the 28-year-old also feels that his almost telepathic understanding with ex-Sevilla striker and now City front man Alvaro Negredo will be a big advantage when they take on Barca this week.

”We have known each other for a long time,” said Navas. “We work together every day and we enjoy our football. But it is not only Alvaro, we have plenty of dangerous strikers for Barcelona to face. They won’t enjoy coming to Manchester. They will find we are a really difficult team to beat here. We are playing very well, creating chances, scoring a lot of goals. Barça won’t be happy to be here.”

”This will be two good teams coming together. It’s good for the fans, good for everyone. I love football, I love good matches and I don’t have any fear about playing Barcelona because this side has to develop the mentality to play against important teams. They have a great team and the best player in the world but this is a chance to show how good we are.”
