The Liverpool striker faces sanctions from Reds boss Brendan Rodgers after admitting to deliberately "falling" to try and win a penalty during the goalless draw at Anfield in October.

A furious Pulis hit out at Suarez following the game, branding the Uruguay international "an embarrassment" and calling on the FA to impose a three match ban.

After Suarez's admission of guilt, Pulis said: "The FA should look at it on a Monday after the games have been played at the weekend, and people who have been caught simulating should be punished.

"I think if you do that - if you give them three, four or five games or whatever - then it will take it out of the game.

"With simulation, I think if a player is found blatantly diving to gain an advantage, whether it is a penalty or conning a referee into giving a decision, they should be dealt with very severely.

"What you would find is that it would soon stop, and that is what we all want, because it is, on a lot of occasions, cheating."

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.
