Liverpool’s Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah says he is very excited about Sunday's anticipated match against Manchester City, insisting that his team can get a positive result, especially with home fans' support.

"It's the kind of game I love, and for the fans it's something different," Salah, who has just recovered from a groin injury that kept him out in the last two matches, told Liverpool's official website on Saturday.

"We and Man City are both playing great football, so it will be a perfect game and I'm very excited," the Pharaohs star added.

The Reds will be in a tough mission to stop Manchester City's perfect run of the season when they host the Premiere League leaders at Anfield.

City has not lost a single match since the season start; leading the table with 62 points after 22 matches. Liverpool, who lost just twice, lie at fourth place with 44 points.

"I'm sure we can have a good result. They play fantastic football, but for me, I just think about my team," said Salah who won the 2017 African Player of the year earlier this month.

"We will see on Sunday," the 25-year-old player added.

Liverpool have avoided defeat in their 16 matches at home so far this season, winning 10 and drawing six of those fixtures.

Salah believes that Liverpool fans will play a key role in helping achieve a positive result against Pep Guardiola's side.

"I love to play here in Anfield, playing at home with a fantastic atmosphere," added Salah.

"We try to play each away game like [it's at] home – the most important thing is to win the game – but at home we feel more confidence with the support from the fans.

"It makes it like [we have] 12 players," he concluded.

Mo has been Liverpool's top scorer this season, having scored 23 goals in 29 appearances for the Reds since joining them last summer.
