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."

"It is fantastic for us to have him available

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