Luis Suarez is set to make his Liverpool debut at Anfield on Wednesday night after receiving international clearance in time to face Stoke.

The 24-year-old Uruguay international finalised his £22.8million move from Ajax on Monday's deadline day but had to then wait for the necessary paperwork to be completed.

Now that has been done Suarez goes straight into the squad as Kenny Dalglish's side look for a third successive victory.

Suarez's availability lessens the impact of losing Fernando Torres to Chelsea in a £50million deal and the absence of club record signing Andy Carroll, a £35million deadline day arrival, who is still a few weeks away from recovering from a thigh problem.
