John Aldridge has told the Echo that he hopes to see Michael Owen return to Anfield in January:

“There’s been a lot of speculation about Michael Owen’s future recently and I must admit I would love to see him back at Anfield.”

“There’s no doubt we need another striker and I think he would be ideal for us.”

“He’s had a frustrating few years with injury setbacks but we’ve seen recently that he is getting back to his old self.”

“Owen has been around for years but he’s only just turned 29 and still has a great deal more to offer.”

“The Reds have done remarkably well to cope without Fernando Torres for so long this season but we are lacking goals.”

“We’ve missed Peter Crouch and if we had kept hold of him I believe our points tally at this stage of the season would have been better.”

“When you look at Manchester United’s trio of Tevez, Rooney and Berbatov, they’ve got better striking options than us.”

“There aren’t enough match-winners in our squad and that’s why we’ve drawn so many home games. Someone of Owen’s calibre would fit the bill and give us another option to Torres and Robbie Keane.”

“Owen is obviously in no rush to sort out his future and I don’t blame him for that. There’s an offer on the table from Newcastle and he obviously wants to see who else is interested as he is out of contract next summer.”

“Making a move for him would make sense but unfortunately I don’t believe it will happen.”

“I think there’s some previous between Owen and Rafa Benitez going back to when he left to join Real Madrid in 2004. But whether it’s Owen or not we need another option up front.”

“Rafa should get a close look at Owen at St James’ Park tomorrow and we’ve got to be wary of him.”

“He gets into good areas and has grabbed some real poacher’s goals recently.”

“He’s got nothing to prove against Liverpool because he did fantastically well for the club but I know the striker is desperate to get his England place back and will want to show Fabio Capello what he’s capable of.”

“We’ve done really well at St James’ in recent years but Newcastle are a different proposition now compared to a few months back.”

“Joe Kinnear has given them a bit of belief and the Reds will need to be at their best to get maximum points.”
