Michael Owen is under no illusions that he will receive a hostile reception when he returns to Anfield next weekend.

Former Liverpool hero Owen returns to his former home next Sunday for the first time with Manchester United since his surprise switch to Old Trafford.

Owen has been warned by former Reds team-mate Jamie Carragher that he could be the subject of stick from Liverpool fans for joining their arch-rivals.

The 29-year-old is fully expecting to receive jeers from the Anfield faithful - and he insists the reception will not bother him

Owen told the Mail on Sunday Magazine: "I'm human. I'd prefer people to sit down and recognise what you did for them and for the team in years gone past but I'm pretty realistic as well and now that I'm playing for their arch rivals... I'm not holding my breath, put it that way."

Former Newcastle and Real Madrid Owen also revealed he has no problem not being a regular starter at United.

Owen has found his path to the starting XI blocked by Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov, but insists he will not complain about his lack of action.

"I think if I was 19 or 20, playing really well and scoring loads of goals and being constantly on the bench, then I'd definitely have a different outlook than now, when I've played a long time," added Owen.

"I've not been left out of the squad since I've been there and it's great. I feel part of the team, part of the squad.

"The manager's said to me that I'll play my fair share of games. In any case. if you'd said to me in the summer, 'You're going to go to Manchester United and be the fourth-choice striker and start 10 games and come off the bench 10 times, and that's your lot', then I would have snapped your hand off."

Big game for both clubs, United wont want to lose again after losing both last year and can put Liverpool properly out of the title race if they win and Liverpool need to win to try and get back in it.

I assume Steveie G and Torres will be back for Liverpool. Not sure on Rooney for United, depends on whether colleen has given birth or not, Personally i hope she's eating lots of Curry :thumbup:

have they said who will be the ref yet?

It's a big game and for Liverpool if things don't go well in Europe midweek the pressure will continue to grow on Rafa.

We need the defence to be on top of there game this weekend otherwise Torres could be rampant so glad VDS is back for this one. Fletcher and Ando in midfield lots of energy Valencia and Giggs down the wings and Berba and Rooney up front for me.

I think you can get at Liverpool this season so I say lets go there and be positive.

I think we need to be careful with this one. Tbh, I think we've got Liverpool at a really bad time. They've lost three in a row, they're gonna do everything not to lose this one. If we come away with a point I'd take it now.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has returned to training ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Lyon, but Fernando Torres sat out once again.

Both players missed the defeat to Sunderland at the weekend after suffering groin injuries while on international duty.

Gerrard is now back working with the rest of the squad and Rafa Benitez will hope he comes through unscathed to take his place in the side against Lyon.

However, Torres' absence from training on Monday morning leaves him more doubtful for the encounter at Anfield.

The Reds desperately missed their star duo on Saturday as Darren Bent's freak goal condemned them to a fourth league defeat of the season.

Liverpool will now be desperate to bounce back from the disappointment in a crucial week at both European and domestic level.

They are currently third in Champions League Group E ahead of home and away games against current leaders Lyon.

Benitez's men are also seven points off the pace in the Premier League and face a key game at home to fierce rivals Manchester United this Sunday.

Do I detect a cunning plan on the part of the fat Spanish Waiter?
They might not win anything else, but if they finish third in their CL group this year and go on to finish 6th in the PL, they may actually stand a good chance of winning the Europa League (or whatever they call the EUFA cup these days)

I'm with you here, BiH, Liverpool are hurting over their loses and that might just give them a bigger point to prove!

Manchester United fans will be searched for beach balls before their clash with Liverpool on Sunday in a bid to stop a Darren Bent goal 'tribute'.

Liverpool beach balls have sold out on the club's official website, with Red Devils fans thought to be snapping up copies of the now infamous red ball ahead of their trip to Anfield.

And although Liverpool are not planning any specific measures ahead of kick-off, fans will be searched before the game and any offending items - including beach balls - will be confiscated.

"It will be the normal search policy," said a Liverpool spokesperson.

Reds supporters watched in disbelief as they lost 1-0 to Sunderland on Saturday when a shot by Bent hit a beach ball and swerved past Pepe Reina.

I can't believe 'It will be the normal search policy' qualifies as news.

Afterall it wasn't the Mackems that bought the beach ball along at the weekend
