Cape Town - Duncan Watmore feels Sunderland have no reason to be intimidated by Liverpool despite the two clubs occupying opposites ends of the Premier League standings.

The Black Cats picked up two consecutive wins, beating AFC Bournemouth 2-1 and Hull City 3-0 for the first time since May, and now face a trip to the in-form Reds at Anfield.

However, the England youth international forward feels last season's credible result, a 2-2 draw against Jurgen Klopp's side, coming back from two goals down - proves they can step up against the biggest teams in the top-flight.

"The mood in the camp is great," he said at a local charity event. "There is a positive vibe around the place, after two wins in the Premier League, and we are now looking to use that momentum to go forward and take that into the Liverpool game. 

"When we were 2-0 down last season, we didn't give up and got the draw. 

"That is a big lesson in football in general, no matter where you are in the league, never give up. There is so much to play for and a game can turn around at any point. 

"We can take confidence from that and make sure we try and use it against Liverpool," Watmore added. "We go to Liverpool knowing how good Liverpool are and Anfield can be a very intimidating ground, but we won't be intimidated. 

"We will play the game we know we can. If we put in a good performance, then hopefully we can get a positive result."

David Moyes will be hoping his front-two combination of Jermain Defoe and Victor Anichebe continue with their goal-scoring form to fire the Black Cats up the English Premiership standings.
