Dirty Suarez to miss Boleyn trip

By: Staff Writer

Premier League runners-up Liverpool with have to do without Luis Suarez when they visit the Boleyn Ground on September 20.

Following the World Cup biting incident - in which Suarez was captured on TV sinking his teeth into the shoulder of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini - the Uruguayan international has been banned from all football for four months.

That means Suarez will miss Liverpool's first nine games of the Premier League season, including the trip to the Boleyn Ground on September 20th - West Ham's fifth game of the 2014/15 season.

The 27-year-old featured in the last encounter between the two teams back in April, when Liverpool snatched a 2-1 win at the Boleyn.

During that match Suarez won a penalty for Liverpool by deliberately kicking the ball at James Tomkins' hand, fell to the floor theatrically on a number of occasions following minimum contact and then had the audacity to ask the referee to book an opponent (see below).

Getting away with it: West Ham had four players booked on the day - and Liverpool none
