PLAYERS: Luis Suarez
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says striker Luis Suarez is likely to play in a full-strength team against the A-League's Melbourne Victory in a football friendly on Wednesday. Suarez has made no secret of his wish to leave Anfield and Liverpool has already received offers for the Uruguayan star. But Rodgers said he expected Suarez to stay with Liverpool this season. He told reporters he would ''chat at some stage'' with Suarez but ''unless there's any sort of offer that comes in anywhere near his value then there's nothing to consider.'' Suarez arrived in Australia on Sunday from South America after taking an extended summer break at the end of the Confederations Cup.
