Henderson says Reds can match Man City

Barclays Premier League leaders hold no fear for Liverpool midfielder

Liverpool youngster Jordan Henderson helped the Reds beat Newcastle

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson says the Reds have nothing to fear when they face Manchester City on Tuesday.

City have won all nine of their home matches in the Barclays Premier League this season and remain top of the table despite dropping points in their last two fixtures.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is expected to bring back some of their star names, having left the likes of David Silva and Sergio Aguero on the bench in the defeat at Sunderland.

But Henderson is confident the Merseyside club can match their big-spending opponents.

"I don't think City are leagues ahead of the rest of us," he said. "Obviously they have some outstanding players and are a good team, but we have some outstanding players too.

"We'll go there looking to put up a good fight and get a good result. Beating Newcastle has given us a massive boost and we'll go into the game with confidence.

"We'll take belief from how we did against them at Anfield. We know City are a good team but so are we.

"We're on the right path and we will face City with a positive attitude."

Liverpool have enjoyed a good run away from Anfield recently, winning four and drawing one of their last six.

Manchester United are the only club to have conceded fewer goals away from home than Liverpool.
