New signing Luis Suarez starts on the bench for Liverpool against Stoke City tonight after his deadline day transfer from Ajax.

With Fernando Torres leaving Anfield in a British record £50million move to Chelsea, Dirk Kuyt is left to lead the line up front, with Steven Gerrard in support.

Fabio Aurelio is expected to play in an unfamiliar central midfield role, alongside Meireles and Lucas, while Jamie Carragher returns to the bench after a lengthy lay-off with a dislocated shoulder.

Meanwhile, Stoke boss Tony Pulis has made five changes to the team which beat Wolves in the FA Cup last weekend, with loan signing John Carew replacing Kenwyne Jones upfront.

Jermaine Pennant and Salif Diao also return to the midfield to face their former side in a 4-5-1 formation.

Liverpool: Reina; Johnson, Kyrgiakos, Skrtel, Agger, Kelly; Lucas, Aurelio, Gerrard, Meireles; Kuyt.

Subs: Gulacsi, Carragher, Poulsen, Shelvey, Suarez, Maxi, Ngog.

Stoke City: Begovic; Higginbotham, Huth, Faye, Wilkinson; Pennant, Wilson, Diao, Whitehead, Walters; Carew.

Subs: Sorensen, Collins, Whelan, Delap, Etherington, Jones, Fuller.
