I have seen Lionel Messi cry, says Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata fears his teammates will struggle to handle Barcelona star Lionel Messi in their Champions League clash.

'Manchester City are one of the strongest teams around, as well as Paris Saint-Germain, ' he continued.

It was a game that will forever be remembered for Gary Neville screaming as Fernando Torres knocked it past Victor Valdes, but Sanchez revealed that it was particularly heartbreaking for five-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi.

The Chilean told Arsenal great Thierry Henry in an interview with Sky Sports that like him he wanted to play along side the best players of the game.

Barca and Chelsea renew their rivalry in the Champions League on February 20, with the La Liga leaders visiting Stamford Bridge in the first leg of their last-16 tie.

Sanchez, who's been criticised in the media after leaving Arsenal for the bright lights of United - instead of City - for a reported £350,000-a-week at Old Trafford, has also hit out at those who criticise players for their wealth and say they lack commitment.

"That's because players demand so much from themselves, people don't see that".

"You buy a flash auto and people say that you're a show-off".

"You can't please everyone".
