Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has revealed that he will try his best to help the team after serving a 10 game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic last season.
The striker made his first appearance in over four months in a 1-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Webdesday. Javier Hernandez scored the only goal for the Red Devils from a corner, thus knocking Liverpool out of the competition while taking United into the next round.
Suarez, who looked a bit rusty, created a lot of opportunities for himself and his team but failed to capitalise. The Reds have already had the better of United in the Premier League having beaten them through a similar scoreline at Anfield. Liverpool missed the creative spark of Philippe Coutiniho who is out with a shoulder injury till the end of October. However, the Uruguayan's arrival is likely to alleviate the void left by the Brazilian's absence and bring Liverpool back to winning terms, with the Reds losing their way after a bright start to the Premier League.
"The result is not good because we lost but the feeling is good because we played very well, we created chances and we missed. 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," he told Liverpool's official website.
"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," he added.
Suarez was set to leave the club this summer with Arsenal favourites to land the 26-year-old. The Gunners had made a £40m plus £1 bid for the player which was rejected by Liverpool but the north London club are expected to come back in with a revamped offer in January.
