Suarez Ready To Play

Luis Suarez is set to return to action for Liverpool when they face Manchester United in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

Suarez is coming to the end of his ten-match ban after biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in April.

Speaking to the media ahead of the United game Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers is hoping Suarez has learnt from his transgression.

When asked if he thought Suarez has learnt from his error Rodgers said: “We will see, we will see.

“The great thing about this football club is no matter what a player has done - or supposedly said - the supporters are 150% behind every player that pulls on that shirt and they back them to the hilt.

“I am sure that is something we will see and aligned to that will be his commitment, and that will be nothing more than I would expect.

“I have no doubt, having been out, he will be even hungrier but his commitment and fight for the cause will still be the same.”

Rodgers, though, says Suarez can’t wait to get back into action.

“It has been a really difficult time for him (Suarez) not playing games,” added Rodgers.

“How he has prepared himself over the last number of weeks has been fantastic. He's really champing at the bit to help the team.

“Everyone knows the depth of his quality and his attitude. Once he gets back on the field again, he will show what he has shown since he's been here.”
