Everton defender Distin up for test with Liverpool star Suarez

Everton defender Sylvain Distin is up for a big game against Liverpool striker Luis Suarez this weekend.

Distin admits he regards the Uruguay international highly.

"Luis seems to be a great player, an amazing player with great quality who can score goals. But he won't be the first great striker I have played against," he said.

"I have been here for 10 years, I don't know how many games I have played, but I have played against players like Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, Fernando Torres. I could give you 20 or 50 names of top strikers I have played against.

"I played against (Edin) Dzeko and (Sergio) Aguero last weekend, so it is just going to be another good challenge, and one which I will enjoy. I can't wait.

"I actually think Aguero and Suarez are very similar in the way they are built physically and the way they play. It will be another good test."
