Luis Suarez could captain Liverpool against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Brendan Rodgers has revealed.

The Uruguay international has been instrumental to the club’s current form after scoring 15 goals in nine Premier League appearances this season.

Would Luis be ready? 100%, absolutely. We will have to wait and see what my decision is at White Hart Lane.

Liverpool will be without long-term captain Steven Gerrard as the veteran midfielder recovers from a hamstring injury which he suffered in a 4-1 win against West Ham United last Saturday.

Vice-captain Daniel Agger didn’t feature in the victory over the Hammers last weekend and isn’t guaranteed a starting spot for the trip to White Hart Lane.

“Daniel Agger is fit,” Rodgers said. “He didn’t train at the start of the week because he was ill, but he has been training now and he’s available for selection. We shall see who
will be captain.”

Asked if Suarez could take the captain’s armband for the Spurs clash, Rodgers added: “Would Luis be ready? 100%, absolutely. We will have to wait and see what my decision is at White Hart Lane. You’ll see then.”

Suarez has scored 66 goals in 107 appearances in all competitions for the Reds following a £22.75m move to Anfield from Ajax in January 2011.
