Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has received a 10-match suspension from the Football Association for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during the 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

The Uruguay international was charged with violent conduct over the incident by the FA, and the governing body has now meted out a hefty ban for the forward.

Suarez apologised for his behaviour after the game, but will now join the ranks of longest suspensions in the English top flight.

The 10-game ban puts Suarez alongside former Southampton midfielder David Prutton, who received the same punishment for shoving referee Alan Wiley during a match against Arsenal in 2005.

Here we look at the even longer suspensions earned by footballers in the Premier League.
