The Baggies stunned Liverpool on the opening day of this season with a 3-0 win and were victorious on their last visit to Anfield in April.
McAuley told the club's official website: "It'll be tough at Liverpool, but it's a challenge that we have to step up to and relish.
"We turned them over on the opening day but it's going to be a tough game at Anfield. Liverpool are looking good at the moment.
"We went there last year, were solid and did them on the counter-attack. We know it's achievable on our day if we get everything right."
Albion are yet to record a Premier League victory in 2013 but can go above Liverpool into eighth place with three points at Anfield.
