Chelsea winger Juan Mata has insisted Manchester City will hold no fears for him tonight - because not even Barcelona frighten the former Valencia star.

Mata faces his biggest test since joining the Blues this summer when red-hot Barclays Premier League leaders City visit Stamford Bridge. Roberto Mancini's unbeaten side have dropped just four points in their opening 14 games, thrashing title rivals Manchester United and Tottenham away from home along the way.

But their remarkable form has failed to unnerve Mata, who said: "As a player, you have respect for Barcelona but you never have fear. So, no, we do not have any fear of City, especially because we're playing at home. We do have the ultimate respect for them because they're the league leaders but fear? Not at all."
