Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been charged by the Football Association with violent conduct after the Uruguayan bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Anfield.
Suarez has also reportedly been fined £200,000 by Liverpool, with the money set to be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group.
The FA, who have offered to provide anger management classes for the controversial forward, must now decide on the length of the suspension, though it is thought that it will be between six and eight games, similar to the ban handed out when Suarez bit an opponent whilst playing for Ajax in 2010.
Elsewhere, Chelsea look set to make a move for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, after it was revealed that the Belgian international has a release clause of £23 million that could be activated should David Moyes’ men fail to qualify for the Champions League.
The Toffee’s defeat to Sunderland on Sunday looks to have all but ended their chances of making the top four, with both fourth place Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur having played a game less than the Merseyside club.
Both Anzhi Makhachkala and Zenit St. Petersburg are also thought to be interested in Fellaini, who has been chased by Chelsea throughout the season.
