Liverpool striker Luis Suarez could face Manchester United in the Capital One Cup tonight after serving a 10-game suspension for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic at the end of last season.

The Uruguayan was in the midst of intensive transfer speculation this summer and Robbie Fowler believes it is about time he showed some loyalty to the club that has stood by him.

Fowler said to BBC Sport: "Without a doubt it is his last chance. He has let a lot of people down, including himself.

"The club have stood by him, so have the Liverpool supporters, and you can see why because he is a phenomenal player and you want phenomenal players in your side.

"I know in the summer it looked like he was leaving and quite rightly Liverpool expected a bit of loyalty back off him and thankfully he is still a Liverpool player.

"I don't think he'll get many more chances but I don't think he will be doing anything remotely as silly as he has."

The striker was brought to the club from Ajax by former boss Kenny Dalglish in a deal worth £22.7 million in January 2011.

Despite the controversy surrounding the player Suarez has quickly become one of the best players in the league having scored 51 goals in 96 appearances for the Reds.

Liverpool finished in seventh in last season’s campaign and Fowler now believes it is time for the 26-year-old to prove his worth to Liverpool.

"You get players of the past who do silly and stupid things, it's not right but you do expect loyalty back," said the Kop legend.

"I'd say to him 'don't give anyone licence to shoot you down. Go and do the right stuff and be the player that we know you are.'

"Let's start talking about Luis Suarez as one of the great players rather than the stupid things he does on the pitch.”
