The Merseyside derby is a 'special match' and Liverpool is a 'special city', says for Reds midfielder.
Liverpool need to be "angry" and keen to bounce back to winning ways after their midweek Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain, says Graeme Souness.
The Reds, who host rivals Everton on Sunday, were thrashed 2-1 by the Ligue 1 champions as they moved to third spot in their group with a match (against napoli) left to play (at Anfield).
However, speaking ahead of the Merseyside derby against the Toffees at Anfield, the former Liverpool star and manager hopes Jurgen Klopp's side turn up.
He told Sky Sports News: "I'm hoping it's an angry Liverpool, and they should be angry with themselves, because some of them didn't turn up in midweek. I'm hoping they're firing on all cylinders.
"Manchester City are a special team, and if you're Liverpool you've got to assume that City are just going to keep winning game after game. Liverpool have to see this as three points and go after them."
