Liverpool's Reina warns Man City: 'It won't be easy to come to Anfield'

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina feels that this weekend's clash with reigning Premier League champions Manchester City will be tough for the visitors.

The Reds host City at Anfield on Sunday and even though they were beaten 3-0 by West Bromwich Albion on the road last weekend, Reina is expecting Brendan Rodgers' team to make life difficult for Roberto Mancini's men.

"We don't have the easiest run of fixtures coming up, but they are what they are," Reina told the Liverpool Echo.

"We have to face them and I'm sure for them it won't be easy to come to Anfield.

"We have to make ourselves strong at home. This year we have to get better results at home."

Regarding the loss, he added: "It's not normal [to lose]. But I don't think we will see many games for Liverpool like we did on Saturday.

"There is nothing to worry about. This is just early days. It was a bad game, and it is as simple as that."

Prior to the weekend's league meeting with City, Liverpool first have to tackle Heart of Midlothian in a Europa League qualifier on Thursday.
