Emery enjoyed plenty of battles with Barca while in charge of Valencia.

"I am overjoyed to play Barcelona because they are one of the best three teams in the world, if not the best," Emery told

"There is the added difficulty of dealing with them but there are more positive than negative things about facing Barcelona. We have to enjoy it."
