Luis Suarez will available for Liverpool FC, when they play Tottenham on Monday night, having completed his eight game ban. The Uruguayan international will be a welcome addition to a Liverpool squad that has recently started to play convincingly and has been winning important matches.

The recent upturn in Liverpool's results and the performances of the three strikers who have been available during Suarez's enforced ban, will give Kenny Dalglish the kind of headache managers always claim to like.

In Liverpool's last game against Wolves, Craig Bellamy, Andy Carroll and Dirk Kuyt all scored as the Reds ran out easy winners. Suarez, however, will probably start in attack with Carroll alongside him. Bellamy and Kuyt will most likely start the game on the bench.

Suarez's return could not come at a better time for Liverpool as they face two important cup matches; Brighton at home in the FA Cup and then Cardiff in the final of the League Cup. Liverpool also faces a difficult run of Premiership fixtures, as they enter their most challenging part of their season.

The next four Premiership games for the Reds see them face Tottenham at Anfield, then away to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, where Suarez will be sure to get quite the welcome. A home game against Arsenal follows, and then a challenging away fixture at Martin O'Neil's improving Sunderland could make or break Liverpool's season.

Liverpool believes that with Suarez back, they can climb up the league table and claim that all important fourth Champions League spot.
