Luis Suarez makes his return to the Liverpool starting XI against Manchester United in Wednesday's League Cup tie at Old Trafford, following the completion of his ten-game ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in April.

After a turbulent summer of transfer talk - where Suarez looked to be destined for a move away from Anfield - the striker missed Liverpool's first five games of the new Premier League season.

David Moyes has made eight changes to his Manchester United side following their 4-1 derby loss to Manchester City on Sunday. Shinji Kagawa starts, Wayne Rooney has been handed the captain's armband while Marouane Fellaini (cup tied) and Robin van Persie (injury) do not feature.

Manchester United line-up: De Gea, Rafael, Evans, Smalling, Buttner, Nani, Jones, Giggs, Kagawa, Rooney, Hernandez

Liverpool line-up: Mignolet, Toure, Sakho, Skrtel, Enrique, Henderson, Lucas, Gerrard, Moses, Suarez, Sturridge
