Milner believes the result will not be decisive either way, with both Liverpool and City still facing some tricky hurdles before the end of the campaign.
"Everyone is talking about the Liverpool game but we have a lot of tough matches coming up so we have to take it one match at a time and just concentrate on our results and not what the other teams are doing," said Milner to City's website.
"There is pressure on all the leading clubs, not just us, and it's all down to who handles it the best. It should be a great game on Sunday. Liverpool are flying at the moment and are looking very strong.
"Anfield is never an easy place to go at the best of times and they are top of the table and really playing well, scoring lots of goals and playing great football."
