Being a Premier League’s top goalscorer last season, it remains unclear – will Suarez stay at Anfield as there have been rumours for some time that he will be bought for £80m by the Catalan club Barcelona.
Liverpool striker has already bitten two players previously, with PSV Eindhoven’s Otman Bakkal and Chelsea’s Brainslav Ivanovic in a 2-2 draw at Anfield. That incident resulted in an undisclosed fine for the Reds and a ten-match ban for the Uruguayan.
