Sadio Mane has insisted he will not change his pattern of play when Liverpool take on Manchester City in a top-of-the-table Premier League clash at Anfield.

"There was contact [at Villa] for sure. Maybe it was not a penalty and he didn't give it, and he gave me a yellow card. To be honest I don't have any problem about it.

"It's what I want to keep doing. If I get a penalty, yeah it's a penalty. If no penalty, no penalty, but [it] will never change the way I'm playing or the way I'm doing my things."

Liverpool sit comfortably at the top of the table with six points winning ten out of their 11 Premier League matches and dropping points only against Man United.

On the other hand, Man City have suffered humbling defeats to Norwich City and Wolves but a win at Anfield will leave them closing the gap to three points against their rivals.
