Our young defender kicked-off his Premiership career with a dream debut against Liverpool back in November.
In the starting line-up that day alongside fellow youngster Ledley King, Alton handled Michael Owen superbly in a memorable 2-1 win.
Now he faces the threat of Owen, Fowler and Heskey again as resurgent Reds, on the back of their UEFA Cup triumph over Barcelona, turn their attention to finishing in a Champions League qualifying spot in the Premiership.
“I made my debut against Liverpool and thought it went okay,” said modest Alton. “It was a great experience to play at White Hart Lane in front of a packed crowd against a team like that.
“I think Anfield might be a struggle though with all the players we have out.
“Liverpool are doing so well at the moment, they’ve quality players who I played against earlier in the season, Fowler, Owen, and we’ll be up against it.
“We could really do with a couple of experienced players back but otherwise the youngsters will do their best again.”
We are 11/2 to win at Anfield with Alton 50/1 to open the scoring - click for details.
