Luis Suarez: The Liverpool striker has been banned for 10 matches by the Footbal

The Uruguay international has been hit with the lengthy ban after being found guilty of violent conduct for his bite on Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic last weekend.

And Haidara thinks Suarez's absence will be a big boost for Newcastle when they host Liverpool in Saturday's late kick-off.

The Frenchman said in the Newcastle Chronicle: "He is definitely the difference for Liverpool. Without him, they will be a different team.

"He is the focal point for their attack. They have other quality players but if he is not playing, that will definitely be a positive for us."
