Controversial Liverpool front man Luis Suarez may make his long-awaited comeback for the Merseyside giants in their Capital One Cup third-round clash with arch-rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford next month, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The draw for the competition took place on Wednesday night following the conclusion to all the second-round ties and it paired fierce enemies United and Liverpool together in what was undeniably the tie of the third round, with the Reds travelling to United on either Sept 24 or Sept 25.

And with the mercurial Uruguay international set to finally finish his ten-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm in a Premier League encounter last April the weekend before, when the Merseyside giants play Southampton, Suarez’s first game back in the red shirt of Liverpool is scheduled to be their trip to Old Trafford.

However, with everything that has gone on between the two rivals in recent seasons involving Suarez and United left-back Patrice Evra, there must remain some doubt as to whether Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers will actually decide to play the striker in the first place.

Equally, though, the Northern Irishman has also recently been keen to emphasise just how important the competition is to the Reds this season after their failures in the previous campaign’s domestic cup competitions, meaning that there is every chance of Suarez featuring against United.
