The Uruguay striker was given the suspension after he bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

A subsequent appeal was rejected by FIFA but CAS will now consider the case.

Barcelona paid Liverpool £75m for Suarez but he is currently banned from even training with his new team-mates.

The 27-year-old is due to return to action at the end of October for ‘El Clasico' against Real Madrid but may return sooner if the appeal is successful.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
