Suarez: I'll give my all for Liverpool

Returning Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has pledged to do his best to help the club which less than two months ago he appeared determined to leave.

The Uruguay international made his first appearance for the Reds in the 1-0 Capital One Cup defeat against Manchester United since being banned for 10 matches for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic - and he appeared fully committed to the cause.

That was in contrast to his attitude early last month when, in the wake of a £40million plus £1 bid from Arsenal - which they thought would trigger a release clause - he claimed manager Brendan Rodgers and the club had reneged on a deal to allow him to leave for a side competing in the Champions League.

Principal owner John Henry waded into the matter by insisting the player would not be sold at any price and the Merseysiders kept hold of their prize asset when the transfer window closed.

"The result is not good because we lost but the feeling is good because we played very well, we created chances and we missed," Suarez told liverpoolfc.com.

"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.

"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."

The 26-year-old's touch understandably looked rusty after so long on the sidelines and he appeared to be lacking the confidence to really attack players and shoot, opting on many occasions to try to pick out a team-mate when he got into dangerous areas.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has no doubt, however, that it will not take Suarez long to get back among the goals just like before his ban, when he scored 17 goals in 21 games.
