De Bruyne not troubled by Liverpool's home record


Kevin De Bruyne is relishing his chance to end Liverpool unbeaten streak at Anfield

Lfc rumour
Manchester City trails Premier league leaders Liverpool by six points heading into this weekend's eagerly-anticipated clash at Anfield.

Anfield has been an unhappy hunting ground for City - they have won just once at Liverpool's home since December 1981 - but De Bruyne is savouring the prospect of playing in such an intense atmosphere in a game of great importance.

"I don't care," De Bruyne said. "A lot of circumstances will decide the game. What can a player do with statistics like this

"It's a game like another. We know it's a big game - Liverpool are ahead. We have to go back, recover [from the away trip to Italy to play Atalanta] and be ready for next Sunday."

It promises to be an electric atmosphere at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, and the Belgian cannot wait for the occasion.

"If you are somebody who wants to compete for titles and win, these are the games you want to play

He told Sky Sport: "I like Anfield, I like it a lot. I love people being on you, being noisy, that is what it's all about. I love the passion of football.

"Lately, a lot of new things have been introduced in football, but I still love things how they were in the old days - people shout and get their team forward. That is something that I learned in Germany, because fans are so behind their team.

"The home players probably get a little bit more [from the Anfield atmosphere] but even if it's against you, you are at the top of the world, playing the best level. That is what you want.

"You fight your whole lifetime to be here. That's the appreciation you get for working as a young child and getting here.

"You know if you play away from home, people are going to be against you and when you play at home, people are for you. That's just the way the world rolls."
