It had been suggested that Barca's powers were on the wane after they suffered back-to-back defeats to arch-rivals Real Madrid and a shock 2-0 reversal in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 showdown with Milan.
They were, however, back to their brilliant best on Tuesday as they swept to a 4-0 victory over the Rossoneri at Camp Nou to book their place in the quarter-finals of Europe's premier club competition.
Villa was among the goals against Milan, along with Lionel Messi (two) and Jordi Alba, and the Spain international claims Barca have no preference as to who they are paired with in Friday's last-eight draw.
He said: "We said beforehand we wanted to start strongly and that's exactly what we did. We got the early goal we were looking for.
"We always felt we could come back in this tie, we always believed. The fans were always behind us, they always trusted us.
"When you go through on a night like this, all of the bad days are forgotten.
"After experiencing what we did tonight, we don't care who we get in the quarter-finals."
