Luis Suarez: Returns to Premier League a

Luis Suarez may divide opinion like no other but Sky Sports Fantasy Football bosses must collectively appreciate his value.

The Liverpool striker returns to Premier League action this weekend following a 10-match ban for biting, with a trip to Sunderland on Sunday offering an ideal opportunity for his reintroduction.

The managerless Black Cats have picked up a solitary point this season and conceded three times last week of West Brom, a side who had only scored once previously in the league.

However, Suarez's hefty price tag of £9.9million means it might well be a simple decision between keeping the game's most expensive player Robin van Persie (£10m) or bringing in the Uruguay star.

Obviously there are other ways to work him in but, given having both on board takes up over a quarter of your budget, it would require some serious sacrifices in other departments.

Suarez looked sharp considering the length of his time out but failed to snatch that all important goal against Manchester United on Wednesday night, while Van Persie, who sat out the Capital One Cup clash, is expected to return from a slight groin strain when West Brom visit on Saturday.

Ultimately there was a mere five points between the duo last season, with Suarez edging the Sky Sports man-of-the-match awards, while both sides face favourable runs of fixtures so, all considered, it could well come down to personal preference.

Elsewhere, Southampton defender Dejan Lovren (£5.2m) was the top scorer from last weekend, racking up 19 points thanks to a goal, a clean sheet and the MOTM award, while Leighton Baines followed closely with 17 thanks to his brace of stunning free-kicks.

Baines is currently the joint top points scorer with 45 along with Daniel Sturridge (£9.2m), while Aaron Ramsey (£5.8m) follows on 41, having netted three times in Arsenal's last two outings.
