Football - Suarez missing for Reds

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez remains the only notable absentee ahead of the Barclays Premier League trip to Aston Villa.

PA Sport Report

The controversial forward is now halfway through the 10-match ban he received last season after sitting out the Reds' season opener against Stoke.

Fellow Uruguayan Sebastian Coates, a defender, is likely to miss most of the season with a knee injury sustained on international duty last week. Striker Luis Alberto was an unused substitute in that game and still to make his debut, while new signing Aly Cissokho could also be in contention.
