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."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
