Arsenal have been handed a nightmare Champions League draw after they were paired with reigning European kings Barcelona in the last-16.

Barca were the team Arsenal were desperate to avoid as they joined the ranks of the second seeds in the draw, but Arsene Wenger's men drew the short straw again as they will come up against Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez and the Catalan dream dream.

This was the reaction of one high profile Arsenal fan to the draw. Don't laugh now!

Chelsea were handed a nightmare draw as well, as they will square off against Paris Saint-Germain once again, in what will be a repeat of last season's last-16 tie.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho will be frustrated to be drawn with PSG, as they were the toughest rival they could have pulled at this stage of the competition, but it does provide a chance for revenge after last season's defeat.

Manchester City appear to have been handed the best draw of the English clubs, as they were paired with Dynamo Kiev.

Here is the full draw for the last-16 of the Champions League:
