The Football Association has charged Luis Suarez with violent conduct after biting Branislav Ivanovic in yesterday’s Premier League match between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield.

“The incident was not seen by the match officials and has therefore been retrospectively reviewed,” said a statement by The FA. “It is alleged that the conduct of Suarez constitutes violent conduct and it is The FA’s contention that the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply is clearly insufficient in these circumstances.”

Suarez has until 1pm ET tomorrow to respond to the charge. “Thereafter, an Independent Regulatory Commission will be convened [to discuss the case] on Wednesday,” added The FA statement.
