Suarez return delights Dalglish

Luis Suarez

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish admits it is "fantastic" to have striker Luis Suarez back from suspension.

The Uruguay international has served the eight-match ban imposed after he was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

He is available for Monday's home game against Tottenham, and Dalglish admitted: "It is great for everybody that we have Luis back in the squad."

Considering his lack of action he may be inclined to put him on the bench.

"He's been back training a couple of weeks now and he's stayed pretty fit," the Reds boss added.

"It is fantastic for us to have him available

"There is a lot to be taken into consideration: the fact he's not played for over a month and more importantly how well the other players have done in his absence.

"But it is good for us - and Steven [Gerrard] will be back so we should be pretty strong."
