Anderson keen to show Liverpool what he can do

Liverpool winger Paul Anderson hopes he can help Swansea earn an FA Cup tie with his parent club.

The Swans must see off non-league side Havant and Waterlooville in a third round replay while Liverpool must defeat cash-strapped Luton, if he is to realise his ambition of taking on Rafael Benitez's side.

And Anderson told liverpoolfc.tv: "Liverpool was the only team I wanted to play against.

"I was just jumping up and down in my room.

"As the draw was happening I was talking to my mate on the Internet and I said 'keep an eye out for 10 versus 19 because that's the dream draw.'

"Then it happened and I couldn't believe it. I was so happy. For it to come out of the hat like that was brilliant. I got straight on the phone to my dad and told him the good news."

"I'm desperate to play at Anfield," he said. "I just hope there isn't anything standing in the way of me playing.

"I've never played for the first team there, only in youth cup games. So I've played in front of the Kop before, but never in front of so many fans.

"It will be really nice if I can go out and show both the Liverpool and Swansea fans what I can do."
