Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has explained starting Luis Suarez for tonight's Europa League clash at Udinese.

Suarez will start his first Europa League match away from Anfield as he is suspended for Sunday's trip to West Ham.

"Luis wants to play every single game and there are other games in this tournament I've had to take him out when he's wanted to play," Rodgers said.

"But he understands the situation completely and it makes sense for him as he's not going to be available for the weekend."
