Ragnar Klavan is relishing a clash against Sergio Aguero when Manchester City host Liverpool on Sunday, expressing respect but not fear for the Argentine striker.

Ragnar Klavan has expressed his eagerness to come up against the "great" Sergio Aguero when Liverpool travel to Manchester City on Sunday.

The Reds visit the Etihad Stadium for a crucial top-four battle, knowing that victory will see them leapfrog their opponents and potentially lift them to second in the table.

Estonia centre-back Klavan, who has started Liverpool's last two games against Arsenal and Burnley, insists that he will respect Aguero, but will not fear him.

The 31-year-old defender told Sky Sports News: "You have to play a little bit differently against Aguero, you can't really storm into duels.

"He is a world-class striker, but a lot of teams in the Premier League have world-class strikers and it's nice to play against them.

"There is always a lot of respect for the strikers I play against, but fear is not the word. Aguero is one of the best for sure. He is great."

Jurgen Klopp's charges won the reverse fixture 1-0 at Anfield on New Year's Eve, thanks to Georginio Wijnaldum's early header.
