The summer signing from Bristol City revealed that he’s never been to the famous footballing venue before, and admitted that the contest is one that stuck out to him on the footballing calendar as soon as he arrived on the south coast back at the start of August.
He said, “It’s a challenge I can’t wait for, I’ve never been to Anfield before and I’ve never played against Liverpool.
“We know how good they are at home and they’re doing well again this year, so it won’t be easy, but hopefully we can go there and get a good result.
“I’ve obviously come on a journey through the leagues to get to games like the one this weekend but I wouldn’t say I ever have to pinch myself or anything like that.
“It’s just about taking it in my stride – it’s something I’m very proud of but these are the games you want to be involved in. When I came to the club I looked at the fixtures and this was definitely one that stood out to me.
“You watch Champions League nights at Anfield and you know what the atmosphere is like there and how passionate the supporters are, it’s one you want to be involved in.”

Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in the league so far this season, with their only loss in all competitions this term coming away to Napoli in the Champions League at the end of September.
Webster spoke about the threat of this weekend’s hosts, but stressed his desire to test himself against some of the most in-form players in the world.
“They have great attacking players and their front three is probably up there with one of the best in the world,” he continued.
“It will be a tough test but you want to play against the best in the world and so it’s something I’m looking forward to.
“We’ve already shown away at Manchester City what we can do against the division’s best and there is plenty to take from that performances. On that day at the Etihad they were more clinical in both boxes and that’s something we’ll be looking to put right this weekend.”
