Liverpool's star striker Luis Suarez has promised to deliver on the pitch after returning from his 10-match ban.
The Uruguayan had made it clear during the summer that he intended to leave Liverpool, but a move away from Anfield never prospered. The 26-year-old made his comeback for the Reds in last night's 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in the Capital One Cup.
Suarez had been training with the Liverpool squad during pre-season but lacked spark against United and hesitated on chances he would have ordinarily converted.
"I know it was a difficult moment but for myself and for the team it's very important I'm back because I can help the team and [being] off the pitch I can't." Suarez told liverpoolfc.com. "We'll keep going for the week and for the next game.
"All the time I try my best on the pitch. I'm here to help the team and help Liverpool and I'll try my best."
The return of Suarez will come as a massive boost to Liverpool and manager Brendan Rodgers. Although England forward Daniel Sturridge has been in great early season form - with six goals in seven appearances - the Anfield side will doubt be glad to have last season's 30-man goal available again.
