Luiz Suarez In Liverpool Squad To Face Stoke City

Luis Suárez is expected to make his Liverpool debut against Stoke City on Wednesday after receiving his international clearance. Although the Reds have won two in a row, they're a bit shaken up after losing Fernando Torres to Chelsea (although I'd imagine running their fingers through £50m quickly soothed the clubs' officials), and are counting on the £22.8m Suárez to help make up for the loss. With 35 goals in 33 league games with Ajax last season, it doesn't seem like Suárez will be much of a risk, but Liverpool haven't liked to make life easy on themselves in the last two seasons.

Liverpool's other major acquisition, the £35m Andy Carroll, will remain sidelined with a thigh injury, giving opposing clubs a few more weeks to craft a perfect chant.
