Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has rapped Manchester United's tactics ahead of their Champions League showdown with Barcelona.

Cesc is backing Barca to blow negative United away.

He claims Lionel Messi and Co will have too much firepower for Sir Alex Ferguson's men in the Champions League Final at Wembley.

Fabregas told the Daily Star: "United defend with eight or nine players behind the ball and hit on the counter.

"If they don't control the likes of Messi and David Villa it will be tough."
