Normally, midweek Capital One League Cup fixtures are light amusement. Something to keep you occupied until the big show returns that weekend. Well not this week.
This week’s 3rd round glamour tie sees Manchester United host Liverpool at Old Trafford and to add fuel to that bonfire, Luis Suarez returns from his eight-match ban and is eligible to play.
As a neutral in these games, it’s always fun to see both sets of fans bait each other and no one plays the protagonist in these dramas quite like the little Uruguayan.
Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers has intimated that Suarez will probably play some part and I, for one, cannot wait to see what mischief he gets up to.
It’s been a somewhat drab start to this year’s campaign. Hopefully Suarez can light the blue touch paper in some form or another.
