The incident in which Suarez bit Ivanovic

This match, part of the 2012/2013 Premier League season, was embroiled in controversy, as during the game Liverpool's Luis Suárez bit Chelsea player Branislav Ivanović. This was his second biting incident following the bite on Otman Bakkal in 2010, and one of many that involved the Uruguayan player.

Suárez was banned for ten matches following the incident and missed the rest of the 2012/2013 season.
