Suarez plays for the first time since the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Anfield back in April when he bit Blues defender Branislav Ivanovic and was subsequently banned for 10 matches.

In a decision that will raise some eyebrows with tonight being a League Cup third round game and the potential banana skin Premier League game on Sunday at Sunderland, Rodgers has named pretty much his strongest line-up.

Mamadou Sakho and Martin Skrtel start at centre-back, supported by Kolo Toure at right-back and Jose Enrique on the left.

Lucas and Steven Gerrard hold back in midfield with Jordan Henderson ahead and Victor Moses and Suarez supporting Daniel Sturridge in attack.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Toure, Sakho, Skrtel, Enrique, Henderson, Lucas, Gerrard, Moses, Suarez, Sturridge

Subs: Jones, Alberto, Aspas, Sterling, Ibe, Kelly, Wisdom

Man Utd: De Gea; Rafael, Evans, Smalling, Büttner; Nani, Jones, Giggs, Kagawa; Rooney, Hernandez.

Subs: Anderson, Carrick, Welbeck, Fabio, Zaha, Ben Amos, Januzaj.

Manchester United vs Liverpool gets underway at 7.45pm and is live on Sky Sports. There are also highlights on BBC One from 11.05pm.
