COOL customer Nathaniel Clyne insisted he would not be fazed by a potential hostile reception when he returns to Merseyside to face Everton.

The on-loan Liverpool full-back is expected to face up against the arch rivals of his parent club when Cherries make the trip to Goodison Park on Sunday (2.15pm).

Clyne last week agreed a deal with Cherries until the end of the season. He played 90 minutes during Saturday’s 3-1 FA Cup third-round home defeat to Brighton.

The England international has made 103 first-team appearances for Liverpool since signing from Southampton in 2015.

Clyne is unbeaten in five Merseyside derbies against the Blues since his arrival at Anfield.

And the London-born star insists he will block out any jeers that come his way from home supporters when representing Cherries for the first time in the Premier League.

Asked what a hostile reaction could be like to deal with, the 27-year-old told the Daily Echo: “I am experienced enough to deal with what the fans give.

“We will have to wait and see how they react to me.

“I will just concentrate on the game rather than focussing on what the fans are doing.

“You just try to block it out. They chant but it’s not really affecting the game. You just have to focus on your job and your roles.”

He added: “When I signed for Liverpool, one of the first things they said was you couldn’t lose a Merseyside derby!

“We (Liverpool) have played them quite a few times and won most of them.

“It’s so soon to go back up there but I am looking forward to the opportunity and hopefully we (Cherries) can get the result we are looking for. Hopefully we can win.”

Clyne was not the only man to last week join Cherries from Liverpool.

Talented young striker Dominic Solanke agreed a permanent £17.5million move to Vitality Stadium.

The former Chelsea man will wear the number 29 shirt for Cherries and is back in light training as he continues his recovery from a hamstring problem.

“He is a quality striker,” said Clyne.

“You can see when he is given the opportunities that he could score lots of goals.

“He did well for England in the Under-20 World Cup, is a good quality player and a good person as a lad as well.

“He is a humble guy and is ready to just work hard and play football.”

Solanke is set to miss the battle with the Toffees. Boss Eddie Howe last week revealed the 21-year-old could be ruled out until the end of January.
