Stoke City deadline day signing Peter Crouch has issued a warning to Liverpool ahead of his debut against the Reds this weekend.
The striker spent three years at Anfield after joining the club in 2005, and has been impressed with the work at the club following the arrival of Kenny Dalglish.
However, the England international has warned Liverpool that they won't be in for an easy ride against the Potters this weekend, and can expect a battle from his new club.
"There have been a lot of changes at Liverpool, but they have settled in very well and they have started the season extremely well," Crouch told the official Stoke website.
"The Liverpool players all seem to have fitted in to the system Kenny wants to play there and they look very dangerous going forward," he added.
"Suarez has been on fire, they have Andy Carroll there who is very talented, Craig Bellamy has just arrived from Manchester City, and I know Stewart Downing from England so they have some very good options. They have strengthened, but so have we.
"I mean, I look around our dressing room and we have some fantastic players in there as well. I know from being an opposing player that nobody enjoys coming here and playing against Stoke. It's always an incredibly hard game to play in, so we have the belief that we can win the game."
Liverpool travel to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday looking for better success than their last Barclays Premier League visit, when the hosts claimed a 2-0 victory during the Roy Hodgson era.
Craig Bellamy is also tipped to make his debut for Liverpool.
