Ivanovic and Suarez came face to face on Sunday, December 29 for the first time since the Uruguayan's infamous bite on the Serbian last April.

Suarez was handed a 10-game ban for biting Ivanovic's arm during a 2-2 draw between the two sides at Anfield, with the striker later apologising to Ivanovic in a phonecall.

Their reunion this Christmas lasted only half an hour, with Ivanovic leaving the pitch with a leg injury in a game Chelsea came from behind in to win 2-1.

But Ivanovic insists everything is 'normal' between the two players, telling Serbian newspaper Blic: "Much has been written about when I was bitten by him.

"Now we have met, greeted, but we all solved (everything) immediately after the previous match.

"Back then he called me by phone almost immediately. So after this match he asked me about my injury, so we really are normal."

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho backed up Ivanovic's thoughts before the two teams locked horns over the festive period, saying: "This was a big thing, but Iva thinks it's something from the past.

"Everyone moves on - he's moved on."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
