Barcelona star Andres Iniesta has no doubts about his favourite English team - and it’s not super-rich Champions League opponents Manchester City.
Iniesta said: “I think Arsenal still play the best football in England. They play in a style in the way that most emulates what we do at Barcelona - and what is in our opinion the right way to approach the game.
“They may not have spent what other teams have in England - but their football philosophy is the most attractive in England.”
Barca arrive in England this week for the clash with Manchester City on Tuesday.
Iniesta added: “Of course we are expecting two very tough games against City - they have players that would get into any squad in Europe.
“We have to show them respect - because they have so many players that are capable of causing us problems. They are used to scoring many goals in their games in England - but we will represent a different challenge. They won’t find things has easy has they have been in England.”
“Many of the players at Barcelona know David Silva very well. It is very simple - he is one of the best and most intelligent players in the world. It will not be an easy job keeping him quiet - but it is something we must try and do.”
