Liverpool's controversial striker is set to be given the captain's arm-band for today's derby away at Tottenham.

With regular captain Steven Gerrard injured and unavailable until the New Year, Suarez could be given the opportunity to lead the Merseyside.

This would be ultimate confirmation that Liverpool have forgiven Suarez and his attempts to engineer a move away from Liverpool in the summer.

Vice-captain Daniel Agger would usually be expected to step up and replace Gerrard, but after missing the last two games and with Mamadou Sakho's great performances, the Dane might not even make it into the starting XI against Spurs.

When manager Brendan Rodgers was asked whether Suarez is ready for captaincy, he replied: "Would Luis be ready for captaincy? One hundred and fifty percent. Absolutely.

"We shall see who will be captain. Daniel Agger is fit. He did not train at the start of the week, because he was ill, but he has been training now and he is available for selection.

"You will just have to wait and see and what my decision is at White Hart Lane".
