Following Arsenal's 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Monday night, fans have allowed themselves the opportunity to start dreaming about their first Premier League triumph since 2004.

However, there is a long season ahead and more than just the league title to fight for. Indeed, just two weeks ago those same Arsenal fans were celebrating an unlikely progression to the Champions League knockout rounds.

An Olivier Giroud hat-trick against Olympiakos saw Arsenal qualify for the last-16, where they will face Barcelona across two legs in February and March.

If the Gunners are to make it to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010, they will need their best players to be at the top of their game. That means you, Petr Cech.

The former Chelsea goalkeeper has brought a winning mentality to the team since arriving from west London in the summer and has been there and done that with regards to beating Barcelona.

The MSN phenomenon 

Cech was part of the legendary team that knocked them out at the semi-final stage in 2012, but the Catalan giants have arguably improved since then, bringing Luis Suarez and Neymar to supplement the incredible attacking force of Lionel Messi.

Together they form possibly the best attacking trio football has ever seen and will surely be the main focus in Arsene Wenger's pre-match preparations, but Cech believes his team-mates should be worried about another of Barcelona's stars.

None of those

As revealed by Piers Morgan, the 33-year-old revealed that Spanish midfielder Andres Iniesta is the Barcelona player he fears most.

Morgan, who was in attendance at the Emirates for Monday's game, revealed on Twitter: "I asked Petr Cech last night who he feared most in Barca team - Suarez, Messi or Neymar? He laughed, then replied: 'Iniesta'."

What do you think, Arsenal fans?

Who is the biggest threat for Barcelona?
