How do you think Sunderland will do in their opening game at Liverpool?

AHMED Elmohamady insists Sunderland will not be overawed by Liverpool’s cheque book as the Black Cats chase their first Anfield victory in 28 years.

The Egyptian told the Echo: “Liverpool have bought some good players with Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing and they had Suarez and Carroll as well.

“They’ve got a very good squad now and it’s going to be a hard game for us and we must be ready for that.

“But I think after pre-season we’re ready for the game now. We had a good work-out at Hibs last Saturday and we’ve worked hard.

“I don’t think it’s a problem that Liverpool have spent that much money. Clubs do spend a lot of money, that’s football.

“But sometimes you can spend that much money and still lose.

“We just want to get a win and start the Premier League with three points.”
