Boss ponders striker options

Brendan Rodgers claims he will not lose any sleep over the fact he will be without main striker Luis Suarez for the trip to West Ham.

The Uruguayan was booked for deliberate handball against Southampton at the weekend, when he appeared to push the ball towards the goal, and that means he will now be suspended for the clash at West Ham next weekend.

Suarez has been under the spotlight all season with accusations of diving and Rodgers was not too pleased to be asked if he thought his handball was deliberate and therefore cheating.

"If he has done that, then I'm sure it is just a natural instinct," he said, before adding: "It's disappointing, because it's needless. And he's done so well to arrive at this stage without getting booked too.

"It's obviously a blow, but there is nothing we can do about it now. He is going to be out, and I'm sure Big Sam will be happy!

"We've just got get on with it and look to perform.

"We've got capable bodies here, capable of scoring goals, and we will look at it during the week and take it from there. We will still be going to win the game.

"There is no point crying about it, we just have to deal with it. I'm not going to lose sleep over the fact that he won't be available."
