The one match ban handed down to Luis Suarez means that he misses the Newcastle match on Friday night.

One player doesn’t make a team but Suarez has been outstanding although he may also have the ‘odd’ issue to work through.

The one match ban relates to a one fingered gesture to those infamously rabid Fulham fans during Liverpool’s defeat at Craven Cottage earlier this month.

On the pitch the Uruguayan has been a cracking buy for the scousers unlike that ponytailed one who we haven’t seen much of recently…

It is still going to be a tough tough match but think of it as United having to play there without Demba Ba, though arguably Liverpool have one or two more capable replacements than we could (will soon have to!) who may  have played for our lot in a previous life.
