Luis Suarez: Could make his return against Manchester United

Luis Suarez: Could make his return against Manchester United

Details of the draw for the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Luis Suarez is set to make his return from a 10-match ban in Liverpool's Capital One Cup third round at rivals Manchester United.

The 26-year-old's future has been the subject of speculation this summer after he began agitating for a move away from Anfield.

Should Suarez stay, his first match back after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic last season will be at Old Trafford against United.

The clash is the pick of a third round to be played on September 24 or 25, when there will be a repeat of this year's FA Cup final.

Wigan shocked Manchester City to triumph in May and will travel to the Etihad Stadium hoping to cause another surprise in this year's Capital One Cup.

Jose Mourinho's first taste of the competition he twice won in his previous spell as Chelsea boss will be at Sky Bet League 1 outfit Swindon.

Holders Swansea start their defence at Birmingham, while there are a number of all Premier League ties. Arsenal are at West Brom, Aston Villa host Tottenham, West Ham face Cardiff and Fulham take on Everton.

Newcastle's reward for sneaking past Morecambe tonight is a home clash with Leeds, while Sunderland take on Peterborough and Southampton welcome Bristol City.

Elsewhere, Tranmere travel to Stoke, Watford host Norwich, Hull welcome Huddersfield to the KC Stadium, Leicester take on neighbours Derby and Burnley host Nottingham Forest.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
