Manchester City vs. Liverpool takes place this afternoon in the Premier League.

The game, which takes place at the Etihad Stadium, is scheduled to kick off at 16:00 GMT and airs live in the United Kingdom on Sky Sports 1/Sky Sports 1 HD.

Liverpool brought in Philippe Coutinho shortly before the January transfer window closed and new team-mate Lucas Leiva believes the 20-year-old will be a huge success at Anfield.

Coutinho became manager Brendan Rodgers' second signing of the transfer window after joining the Reds in an £8.5million deal from Inter Milan.

"The manager spoke with me, not asking me about his talent, because he was sure about his talent, it was just about how he was as a person," Lucas said.

"I spoke to him a few times, not trying to convince him to sign, just telling him about the club, how things work here. He just felt it was a great opportunity for him to come to the Premier League and we are happy to have him here.

"Coutinho is a very talented player, with a lot of experience for someone so young.

"He is a proper Brazilian with a lot of skill, he likes to play with the ball.

"He had a very good spell with Espanyol and I think he will be a great player in the future for us."
