As he prepares to make his first Premier League appearance for Liverpool in a crunch clash at home to runaway leaders Manchester City, the 26-year-old insists he is not concerned about his status as the world's most expensive defender.

Klopp's men are now fourth, but could move to second and close the gap between them and City to 15 points should other results also go their way.

Man City are 5/4 favourites, while the draw is 13/5.

The last time the two sides met was a humbling 5-0 defeat for the Reds at the Etihad but Manchester City haven't won at Anfield in the Premier League for 15 years so there is every chance that Liverpool can get a result on Sunday.

'Of course if you want to achieve something that's good and win titles you have to win these kind of games, ' he said.

'But Liverpool is such an important game, to realise again if we are able to do big things in this season, in important stages, in the Champions League. We have goals and creativity all over the team.

"I just wanted to say that I have a song I think will go down really well on The Kop - maybe we could do it against Manchester City?".

"We know City's quality, we know that they're running away with [the league], but I think, on their day, Liverpool can match anybody", McAteer told the Liverpool website.

Becoming England's third top-flight "invincibles" isn't the only milestone fuelling City's charge.

The Saints have been back in the top flight for six seasons and can now be backed at a price of 5/1 to be relegated.

'You can not transfer the heart and soul of Liverpool Football Club, although I am sure there are many clubs who would like to buy it'.

Manchester City's remarkable 18-match win streak came to a stunning end in a New Year's Eve road draw against Crystal Palace.

Coutinho or not, Liverpool have a great recent record against City at Anfield, winning their last four meetings on Merseyside, and going undefeated since 2003. "As long as the club keeps doing that then I'm happy here". "The records are there to be broken".

The megabucks transfer of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool to Barcelona has sway over a couple of English Premier League lines - one immediate, one long-range.

City, on the other hand, have a plenty of match winners on their side that includes Sergio Aguero, former Reds winger Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, David Silva and the midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne.

According to TMW in France, Stoke City are actively pursuing Antalayaspor player, William Vainqueur this month.

Virgil Van Dijk will make his Premier League debut for the Reds.

"But if you are not courageous in your game, you will also have a problem".
