Victor Moses insists he has no problem at all with new Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez as the pair are set to line-up with each other for the first time tonight.

Moses was playing for Chelsea on the day of that infamous incident where Suarez sunk his teeth into the arm of Branislav Ivanovic.

The Uruguayan's actions earn't him a ten match ban from which he makes his return from tonight in the League Cup versus Manchester United, ironically the team at the heart of another Suarez scandal.

The Liverpool striker was previously banned for eight matches after racially abusing United defender Patrice Evra.

Furthermore, the 26-year-old came in for criticism over his summer conduct when he publicly and actively pursued an exit from Anfield to interested clubs Arsenal and Real Madrid, despite the club standing by him through both scandals.

But Moses who joined Liverpool on a season-long loan from Chelsea on transfer deadline day hasn't encountered any problems with his new teammate.

"He has been a great player. As we all know, he is a top striker. Even when he has been training, he has been working hard, because he knows that he is coming back. We have really missed him. He is going to be a big factor for us in winning games. We will be relying on him to score goals. He is always a goalscorer. It is good for us that Luis Suarez is back." The Nigerian told SkySports.

"He is a great lad. I have spoken to him every day. We always say hello to each other in the morning and train together. He is a great lad and I have really enjoyed playing alongside him in training."

Speaking about the biting controversy, the 22-year-old added: "I was just concentrating on the game, really," said Moses "After the game, when I saw that he [Suarez] had bitten Ivanovic, he [Suarez] knew that was a mistake. But that is football. Stuff like that happens and we have to move on as professional footballers.

"He definitely apologised to Ivanovic. That is what happens as a footballer. Sometimes you get a little bit angry and react in a way you should not. But you move on as a professional footballer.

"He will go out there and do his thing.

"Luis will go out there and score goals. That is what he loves to do. Hopefully he can do that for us on Wednesday."

Moses will be looking to help his new side to a second win of the season over their fiercest rivals in the space of a couple of weeks when the two sides meet at Old Trafford tonight.
