Thomas Sorensen expects Peter Crouch to pose a danger to Aston Villa's unbeaten record on Saturday.
Crouch spent just over two years as a Villa player after costing £5 million from Portsmouth, but scored just six goals in 43 appearances.
But since leaving Villa Park for Southampton in 2004, Crouch has gone on to win international honours with England and clinch a £7 million switch to Liverpool.
Villa travel to Anfield this weekend and Danish keeper Sorensen outlined what to expect from his former team-mate.
"He's a very good player," Sorensen told Sky Sports News. "He's technically very skilled.
"He reminds me a bit of Niall Quinn when I played with him. He's maybe not as physically strong, but he's hard to get the ball off and scores goals.
"He has proved that for the national team and Liverpool. He will be a tough test for defenders and the keeper as well."
Sorensen is optimistic Villa can stretch their nine-game unbeaten run in The Premiership by pinching a result on Merseyside.
He added: "Hopefully we can keep it going.
"We've got a tough game against Liverpool, who have been scoring a lot of goals at the moment.
"We have done well there in the past and hopefully we can frustrate them and maybe get a point or three points."
