Jose Mourinho believes Uruguay striker Luis Suarez WILL cause England problems in their Group D clash on Thursday night.

The 27-year-old Liverpool striker is expected to be passed fit to face club team-mates Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge after missing his country’s 3-1 loss to Costa Rica as he recovered from knee surgery.

And Chelsea manager Mourinho feels Suarez, who won the PFA player of the year award after scoring 31 Premier League goals last season, will give Roy Hodgson’s defence a headache in their must-win World Cup encounter.

“I think Suarez is going to create problems for England,” Mourinho said. “It’s a big match, I’ve waited a lot for this match because this is like a knock-out game, the one that loses is out.

“Suarez is coming back from injury and for sure, he feels his country deeply, the South American that plays in Europe, that lives in Europe.

“[He] is a very important player for Uruguay. Uruguay had a very unexpected result in the first match, they are, as England, one defeat and goodbye.”
