Luis Suarez vowed to make amends for a troubled spell after the Liverpool striker finally returned from suspension in Wednesday's 1-0 defeat at Manchester United.
He lacked match sharpness but played the full 90 minutes of the League Cup third round tie at Old Trafford and looked committed to the cause.
Speaking after his return to action, Suarez told Liverpool's website he was determined to help the club make up for lost time.
"The result is not good because we lost but the feeling is good because we played very well, we created chances and we missed," he said.
"I know it was a difficult moment but for myself and for the team it's very important I'm back because I can help the team and being off the pitch I can't.
"We'll keep going for the week and for the next game.
"All the time I try my best on the pitch. I'm here to help the team and help Liverpool and I'll try my best."
