NYON (Switzerland) - Manchester City's reward for reaching the Champions League round of 16 for the first time is a clash with Spanish giants Barcelona.

City have said that they fear no one after beating reigning champions Bayern Munich 3-2 last week.

Their failure to win by another goal, however, ensured that the German champions were seeded, and they were drawn together with Premier League leaders Arsenal.

Fellow Londoners Chelsea will welcome back former striker Didier Drogba to Stamford Bridge, when Galatasaray visit in March.
