Liverpool to send message starting Suarez at Man City

Luis Suarez is set to start for Liverpool tonight at Manchester City.

Luis Suarez is set to start for Liverpool tonight at Manchester City.

The Sun says that is the broadest hint yet that Liverpool are not ready to accept his eight-game ban for racist abuse.

The FA have so far had no contact from Anfield chiefs regarding an appeal against the suspension.

Unless the Reds have a change of heart and accept the punishment, Suarez will continue to be available.

Liverpool have until January 13 to contest the decision but have been widely urged by anti-racism groups to accept their punishment and apologise to Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.

Yet until that happens, Suarez will continue to lead the attack with a Carling Cup semi-final first leg at City next week also on the agenda.
