Borini looking to step into Suarez void at Liverpool

Fabio Borini hopes to prove himself in the final three matches of the season for Liverpool.

Fabio Borini hopes to prove himself in the final three matches of the season for Liverpool.

The Italian striker has battled with injuries this season but after returning with a goal in the 6-0 rout of Newcastle United on Saturday, is looking to fill the void left by the suspended Luis Suarez.

"It had been a long injury for me and a long wait to score in the Premier League," he said.

"It's been hard. When I hurt my shoulder they said my season could be over but I fought back as I really needed to come back earlier.

"I took the minimum possible to get back training which was eight weeks instead of 12. Some people probably didn't think I could make it but I fought back.

"I can play a big part now not because Luis is suspended but because I am back fit.

"Whether Luis is available or not, we all need to focus on doing our jobs."
