London - Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has warned Arsenal they will be left spell-bound when he unleashes his bewitching forwards in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Enrique's side head to the Emirates Stadium for the last 16 first leg on a 32-match unbeaten run in all competitions and with their front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar having scored 91 goals between them this season.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger labelled Barcelona as "not far from perfect" this week, calling the three-pronged attack a collection of "top, top class" players.

And Enrique, looking to lead the Champions League holders to a sixth European Cup crown, says he only has to say the magic words to get the best from his star names.

"I tell them 'abracadabra' and the magic sparks - that is all I do!" Enrique told reporters on Monday.

"I always work really hard and I always had the chance to have plenty of good strikers in my squad, it is quite simple, quite easy.

"In some situations you don't even have to wish what you would like them to do, they already do it. We have to work hard so our midfielders can give them the ball.

"We all have the same targets and we know how difficult it is to achieve those targets. I'm delighted with those three and also with the squad.

"I have three great players, they are the chosen ones, they are eager to win and every two or three days they have new motivation. I see them training and I'm delighted to be their manager."
