Stoke's Owen keen to enjoy playing Liverpool for once

Michael Owen is intent on producing a positive performance against Liverpool on Boxing Day.

The Stoke City striker has not fared particularly well against his old club in recent years but hopes Wednesday's meeting at the Britannia Stadium fills him with some Christmas cheer.

"It is a strange feeling really playing against your old club, especially one where you were there for around 15 years," Owen said.

"Liverpool are a big part of my life and career and I had some of the best times of my life at the club.

"So certainly I have happy memories. I have not been so happy playing against them since; I have never scored and not particularly enjoyed it."
