Will Benitez Jibe Spark A Reaction From Owen?

Owen makes a sentimental return to Anfield on Saturday and Kevin Keegan believes we could see "the REAL Michael Owen".

Keegan: "I don't think Michael will need an extra incentive. He's been outstanding in training and matches since I've been here - his work-rate has been terrific.

"When we weren't creating anything he was scoring goals despite that, and against Blackburn last Saturday, when we created chances but he didn't score, he came into the dressing room and apologised.

"He will be up for it. I know what it's like going back to play there. It's a wonderful experience going back to a former club, made even more wonderful when you get something.

"If you go to Anfield expecting to get nothing that is exactly what you will get.

"That's why we will roll up there tomorrow expecting to come home with something and we are going to have a go and make sure we give them a good game. And don't forget we are going there after we all thought was a very encouraging performance if not result against Blackburn Rovers last Saturday.

"Yes Liverpool has a strong squad but when haven't they?"
