Liverpool to field Suarez against Manchester United after return from ban

Rodgers is ready to play the forward in the League Cup.

Perhaps the most interesting result of the draw for the third round of the League Cup saw Liverpool pitted against fierce rivals Manchester United.

It’s unusual to see such a big clash this early on in the tournament and the game also coincides with the end of Luis Suarez’s 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Brinislav Ivanovic last season.

With Brazilian playmaker Coutinho injured for six weeks and top-scorer Daniel Sturridge also struggling with fitness issues of late, manager Brendan Rodgers is prepared to give the controversial Uruguayan a start in this battle of Old Trafford.

“He [Suarez] has been doing a lot of individual work, specific to him, on top of all that [in-house matches] and replicating his high-intensity speed runs he would do in a game,” the 40-year-old was quoted in the Mirror.

“The idea is that, hopefully, when he steps back in it will be seamless. Of course, there will be a transitional period for him, but I’m really looking forward to having him back.”

Suarez was the Reds’ top-scorer last season despite missing the last four matches through suspension, but since then Sturridge has taken up that mantle.

The 23-year-old has scored in all four of the Merseyside outfit’s Premier League games so far this term and leads the division’s charts with Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud.

As a result of the England international’s success, Suarez may well be asked to operate from a wider position upon the South American’s return – a role the 26-year-old often plays for Uruguay.
