Cesc Fabregas insists Arsenal can dump red-hot Barcelona out of the Champions League.
Barca have been in sensational form this season on both domestic and European fronts, and are the favourites to win their last-16 tie with the Gunners having crushed the English side in the quarter-finals last season.
But Barcelona academy product Fabregas, who was denied a return to the Catalan giants last summer, believes Arsenal can oust Pep Guardiola’s side if they do not show “too much” respect like they did last season.
Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s first leg at the Emirates Stadium, the Spanish World Cup winner told The Sun: “We don't have to worry too much about them - we just have to play with no fear and play our game.
“We respected them too much last season, in the first half especially.
“We know they are the best team in the world and it is a big task for us. We have a young team but one with a lot of quality and energy.”
