The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has reached a decision in the case related to Luis Suárez of Uruguay following an incident that occurred during the FIFA World Cup match between Italy and Uruguay played on 24 June 2014.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided that:

·  The player Luis Suárez is regarded as having breached art. 48 par. 1 lit. d of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC) (assault), and art. 57 of the FDC (an act of unsporting behaviour towards another player).

In a match billed as “The Clash of the Desperate Ones”, Uruguay edged out England 2-1 thanks to a brace from their talisman Luis Suarez. The Premier League top goalscorer made his return from injury in decisive fashion, even without being completely fit. His contributions virtually eliminated the Three Lions from the competition.

The match began in speculative fashion, with both teams struggling to get going on the back of demoralising defeats. Wayne Rooney came closest to scoring for England in the first half, hitting the bar from close range and blasting a free kick just wide. However, Suarez scored with virtually his first chance of the game, punishing England’s profligacy by prodding home a looping cross from strike partner Edinson Cavani.

Liverpool moved closer to earning the title of the Premier League's Champions elect as the Reds opened up a 5 point lead over challengers Chelsea with a hard earned 3-2 win over relegation threatened Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Early goals from Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez had put Liverpool 2-0 ahead, but a tap in for Gary Hooper following a fluffed punch from Simon Mignolet early in the second half made the game interesting. Sterling scored a second time, once again with the aid of what this time was a massive deflection to restore the Reds' two goal cushion, but a Robert Snodgrass effort 13 minutes from time set up a thrilling finish. Liverpool though hung on in the end to register the three points, continuing to live by the mantra of whatever you score, we'll score more.

Manchester United were outclassed everywhere on the pitch as Liverpool enjoyed a great win at their greatest enemies’ home ground. Rafael’s indiscriminate handball gave Liverpool a 34 minute penalty which Steven Gerrard duly converted. Then in the first minute of the second half, Phil Jones gifted another penalty and Gerrard didn’t miss to double Liverpool’s lead. United didn’t have anything to boast of, apart from a couple of shots by Wayne Rooney. And then, to make things worse, Nemanja Vidic was sent off for seemingly tripping Daniel Sturridge but Gerrard missed from the spot. Luis Suarez provided the icing on the cake for Liverpool by scoring a third in the 84th minute.

Liverpool could be happy that they came back from a 2 goal deficit to salvage a point at home against an inspired Aston Villa, however other observers may feel that this was more a case of 2 points dropped as they drew the game 2-2. Aston Villa were clinical on the break as they went ahead with goals from Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke. Liverpool pulled a goal back before the break through Daniel Sturridge before Steven Gerrard levelled the scores with a perfectly placed spot kick. The Reds pushed on in search of a winner, however, on the balance of play a draw was probably a fair result for Villa, who would no doubt feel a little hard done by from the award of the penalty which Luis Suarez won to secure a share of the spoils.

Liverpool brought Daniel Sturridge into the starting eleven after his return from injury and this meant that Lucas Leiva had to be satisfied with a place on the bench as Liverpool set themselves up in an attacking 4-4-2 formation for the first time in a long while. Club captain Steven Gerrard started another game in a deeper role after he impressed in such a position against Hull City last weekend. Aston Villa gave debuts to on loan pair Ryan Bertrand and Grant Holt, the latter coming on from the bench for his first appearance. Weimann was also given a recall to the starting eleven after impressing in his cameo against Arsenal on Monday night.

An off colour Liverpool beat Hull City 2-0 following a magical free-kick from Luis Suarez after a Daniel Agger header had put them ahead as they moved back into the Champions League spots of the Premier League.

Liverpool faced Hull City at Anfield as they looked to bounce back from consecutive defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea that saw them fall to 5th place in the league. Liverpool’s changes from their game against Chelsea were all enforced due to injury as they recalled Aly Cissokho, and Iago Aspas in place of Mamadou Sakho and Joe Allen. Daniel Agger switched to center back in place of Sakho. Hull City were looking to carry the momentum they generated after a 6-0 thrashing of Fulham over the weekend as they named a largely unchanged side except for recalls to Alex Bruce and David Meyler.

Chelsea came out trumps with a 2-1 victory against Liverpool in a game they dominated for the most parts. Goals from Hazard, and Eto’o were enough to come back and take the lead after conceding early in the game from a set piece. However, Liverpool will have every reason to be hard done by the officials once again as Luis Suarez was denied a stonewalled penalty and a couple of really poor challenges from Samuel Eto’o and Oscar escaped without getting the necessary attention they deserved.

There were dramatic changes for Chelsea from their match against Swansea on Boxing Day. David Luiz started in a holding midfield role in place of the suspended Ramires, keeping Frank Lampard company, with John Obi Mikel being surprisingly left on the bench. Cesar Azpilicueta returned in place of Ashley Cole, while Juan Mata too dropped to the bench as Willian came back into the starting eleven. For Liverpool, Aly Cissokho dropped to the bench as Daniel Agger took his place in the team as they otherwise retained the same team which impressed at the Etihad. Jordan Rossiter, a 16 year old, earned a spot on the bench for Liverpool.
