Liverpool striker Luis Suarez will use John W Henry's jet to get back to England in time for the Merseyside derby after he's represented Uruguay in their World Cup playoff second leg on Wednesday night. 

He was originally not due to fly home until Friday, but the Liverpool owner has organised his own private jet to fly Suarez from South America back to the north west of England to give him an extra day to prepare for their showdown with rivals Everton on Saturday. 

The second leg of Uruguay's playoff with Jordan is not scheduled to kick off until 11pm GMT on Wednesday in Montevideo. Suarez's side lead 5-0 after the first leg meaning qualification for Brazil is all-but secured. 

The frontman has been a key ingredient in Liverpool's strong start to the Premier League campaign despite missing the start of it through suspension for biting Branislav Ivanovic towards the back end of last season. 

Since returning to the first team he has been in imperious form, netting eight league goals to leave him joint-top scorer in the division along with strike-partner Daniel Sturridge and Manchester City's Sergio Aguero. 

The Kop's manager Brendan Rodgers has previously stated how his star man Suarez rarely suffers from jet lag, but is said to be concerned by the lack of rest his player will get ahead of a crucial encounter. 

But Henry's offer should allow the Uruguayan enough time to recover from travelling 17,000 miles in the two weeks he's been away on international duty. 

The Reds could briefly go top of the Premier League if they win at Goodison Park, with league leaders Arsenal not kicking off until 3pm on Saturday.
