London:

Michael Owen is desperate to break his scoring duck against former club Liverpool on Wednesday and end an eight-year wait.

The 33-year-old hit 118 goals during his prolific Anfield career but since leaving for Real Madrid in 2004, he has not been able to break through.

"It is a strange feeling really playing against your old club, especially one where you were for around 15 years," Stoke striker Owen told Independent Sports News.

"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."

After leaving for Spain eight years ago, Owen went on to play for Newcastle and Manchester United.

On Wednesday, he hopes to make his first Stoke appearance since October 27 having overcome a hamstring problem.
