Liverpool striker Suarez: Man Utd jeers will inspire me

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez says Manchester United jeers will inspire him today.

Liverpool's Uruguayan striker, blasted for his handball goal at Mansfield last week, faces race-row rival Patrice Evra again at Manchester United today.

Suarez said: "I warn you, I do not feel under any pressure. I am only focused on the present.

"I prefer not to comment on the controversy generated by my goal in the FA Cup and the controversy with Evra is in the past.

"This is not Evra v Suarez but Manchester United v Liverpool because there will be 22 footballers on the pitch.

"Nor am I pre-occupied by the reception I may get at Old Trafford.

"It's normal that I receive criticism because Liverpool is a big rival for United.

"I am Uruguayan and accustomed to playing in stadiums with crowd pressure. The atmosphere inside Old Trafford will be charged but I never fear these situations.

"Normally I always produce my highest level of performance in these type of matches.

"And I am content with the praise I have received this season.

"I always wanted people only to judge me by my work on the pitch and not by other questions."
