Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has declared himself fit to face Italy in Uruguay's friendly on Tuesday but admits he already has one eye on the weekend clash with Chelsea.

The 24-year-old scored all the goals in Friday's 4-0 2014 World Cup qualifying victory over Chile in Montevideo but came off 13 minutes from the end with a minor back complaint.

Suarez is confident he is ready for a second match in four days - with a transatlantic flight in between - but has suggested it may be more important for him not to risk aggravating the problem. He told Uruguayan newspaper El Pais: "I was a little scared by the pain I had in the game but treatment I had was just a precaution and it does not hurt."
