The Brailian, who joined City for £32.5million from Real Madrid, insists they are genuine title contenders.
He told The Sun: “This is a great time to start winning games against the bigger teams so we can prove we are here to win the title.
“Do I think it’s possible? Yes. Liverpool is one of the great games with their history and tradition. Every player loves these moments and I cannot wait.
“We are not so far from the leaders and the league has just started.”
