Barcelona star Yaya Toure has backed his team-mates to see off Arsene Wenger's Arsenal when the two sides meet in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The midfielder, brother of Manchester City and former Gunners defender Kolo, believes the Catalan giants have enough in their squad to down the north London outfit. Speaking to reporters, he said: "Who will be favourites? Barcelona, because we are the champions of Europe. "Barca are winning matches, despite our rivals changing their systems to cope with us. It is actually a positive for us because it demonstrates that we are able to obtain success against any rival. "The tie against Arsenal will be different. The English practise a similar style to us."
