Liverpool are looking to unleash Luis Suarez on a Manchester United side hell-bent on showing manager David Moyes that they are worthy of wearing the famous red shirt.
The Capital One Cup third round tie at Old Trafford heralds the return of the bite-size Uruguayan, who will have been twiddling his thumbs and sharpening his molars during his 10 game fast.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, has consistently defended Suarez during his absence and suggested that he owes Liverpool a debt of loyalty.
Is this the same Suarez that, from the moment the sun rose above the Mersey in July and welcomed the summer transfer cattle market, tried to prise himself away from Anfield and land a position with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Arsenal or any other club that endorsed on-pitch snacks.
The match is intriguing on many levels, will Manchester United bounce back to magnificence after their weekend spanking from the resplendent neighbours?
Will Suarez make headlines for the right reasons? With Liverpool's league form already showing signs of 'flattering to deceive', surely the cup competitions offer a realistic opportunity of trophy success to the once formidable Merseyside outfit.
September seems a little early for these giants of the beautiful game to be hoping for success, even in the one competition they care little for, perhaps, just maybe perhaps they will provide a spectacle. Wednesday's match is sure to be an interesting spectacle.
