Barcelona's Luis Suarez reacts after missing a chance to score

Liverpool faced Barcelona in a pre-season friendly at Wembley.

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez reacquainted himself with former Liverpool teammates Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho as the two sides played out a pre-season friendly at Wembley.

Suarez is widely regarded as one of the best players Liverpool have ever had in terms of natural ability, and his stature among the Reds supporters remains as high as it did during his playing days at Anfield.

The Uruguay international spent three-and-a-half years as a Liverpool player, scoring an impressive 82 goals in 133 appearances in all competitions including 31 Premier League goals in his final campaign.

He almost single-handedly led Liverpool to the title in the 2013-14 campaign, only to be denied in the final stages of the season as Manchester City came through to pip the Merseysiders.

After Fernando Torres’ success at Anfield many felt Liverpool would have to wait to have another great striker on their books, but Suarez ultimately surpassed the Spaniard in ability and popularity.

Since moving to Barcelona in the summer of 2014, he has helped the La Liga giants to two league titles, two Copa Del Rey titles, one Champions League success and two other major trophies.

The 29-year-old is hungry for more success at the Nou Camp, and ahead of his side’s domestic campaign, Suarez and co travelled to England to face Liverpool in a pre-season friendly.

Jurgen Klopp’s men impressively ran out 4-0 winners, but the real winners for the day were the Reds’ supporters as they got to show their appreciation for Suarez by giving him a standing ovation.
