The iconic Barcelona talisman has netted an impressive 22 goals against English opposition, and he'll look to add to that tally when his side face Manchester United in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Messi created and scored in Barcelona's dismantling of Lyon in the last-16 stage, with the La Liga leaders being paired up with Manchester United for a spot in the Champions League semi-final.

He's now set to lead his team out against United in the next round of the Champions League, and the 31-year-old has the chance to increase his ridiculous goal-scoring record against English teams.

As mentioned above, he's netted 22 goals versus English sides including nine against Arsenal and two versus quarter-final opponents, United.
