Luis Suarez sends Liverpool fans special message ahead of second-leg tie

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has sent a special message to Liverpool fans, as they prepare to face the Anfield side in the Champions League second leg tie on Tuesday night. 

The former Red set his team to a 3-0 victory in Barcelona by scoring the opening goal, putting them in a commanding position ahead of Tuesday's tie. 

The Argentine, who starred for Liverpool for three seasons before moving to Spain, posted a message on his Instagram, saying he was excited to be back 'home'.

In his caption, Suarez wrote: "Anfield I am excited to see you again." 

In addition to the message, he posted an aerial photo of the Anfield Stadium as the Barcelona team landed at the John Lennon Airport.

This will be the first time the striker, who has been in phenomenal form for Barcelona, takes part in a competitive match at Anfield since leaving.

The Reds have a mountain to climb as they will need to score a massive three unanswered goals against a side that has performed well against English opponents in recent seasons. 

Liverpool will also have to do without key marksmen in Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firminho, who have been ruled out due to injuries.
