A Barcelona supporter immediately jumped to the defence of Messi, who has a terrific scoring record against English clubs in the Champions League.
Social media user @TheBarca_Guy responded to the Arsenal fan's post by sharing a video of Messi tormenting the Gunners back in April 2010.
He wrote: "Messi scored 4 Goals in 90 minutes against your club. Have some shame man."
Needless to say, the Twitter exchange about Messi vs. Premier League sent social media wild.
One Twitter user wrote: "He will get 20 in 5 matches against the best arsenal team ever assembled."
A second tweeted: "Messi has 0.90 Goal per 90 mins which is highest is history while also having most assists in history. If he played in English Premier League, he would have won 10 Ballon Dors by now."
A third added: "Epl is overrated.. Bunch of Average teams or lil bit above average making it look competitive."
How would Messi fare in England's top flight? Let us know what you think.
