The Reds will field their U23 team to face the League One club after manager Jurgen Klopp decided to let his first-team players enjoy their winter break.
"Everyone is really excited about it," Hoever told Liverpoolfc.com.
"That we can play at home at Anfield with all the crowd and the fans. That we can show what we can do as a team, do the club proud and win the game.
"We just need to focus on our game and play the best game we can play.
"Shrewsbury gave everything the whole game [in the first meeting] and still believed when they were 2-0 down. That's good for us to know.
"It's just a great opportunity for us to play at Anfield. Everyone in the squad wants to win the game. We just need to focus and work hard and then we'll do our best and hope it's enough to win the game."
