The Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is expected to start in the Europa league match against Udinese, which is a must win game for the Premier league club if they are to progress to the next round of the competition. Due to the fact that Luis Suarez is going to be absent for the match against West Ham during the weekend as a result of the fifth booking he received against Southampton, he will be free to play in the Europa league encounter according to the manager Brendan Rodgers. Liverpool will be without a striker against West Ham due to the fact that Fabio Borini is injured.

The suspension for Luis Suarez means that Brendan Rodgers has to deal with a major headache for this match, but for now he is concentrating only on the match against Udinese. The 25-year-old has been one of the important players for Liverpool this season. The club would be struggling near the bottom of the table without these goals according to one recent statistic. So far, Suarez has been part of the Liverpool team in five Europa league matches. However, he has not been utilised by the manager for the away matches in this competition. The match against Udinese could be the first time Suarez plays in the away match of the European competition this season.

“The suspension means he will more than likely start now against Udinese. We will be strong when we get over there,” said the Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. Liverpool are expected to name a strong starting line-up for this match, which could even include the captain Steven Gerrard, who has been protected by the manager in order to preserve the league form. Despite these attempts, Liverpool are struggling in the Premier league and are currently in the bottom half of the table.
