Suarez was issued with the punishment for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, an act which drew condemnation from the Prime Minister as well as football pundits.

Redknapp said: "I could see it coming. Once politicians have opinions, you could see he was going to be hammered, for sure.

"He's such a player, just the most fantastic footballer. I think he's amazing. You'd absolutely love to have him playing in your team.

"He could play in any team in the world he is that good so it's a shame that he goes off the rails.

"I agree with what Graeme Souness said: he's now in the last chance saloon. He can't do it again. It's quite a fierce punishment, 10 games, but he's got to learn. It must be difficult for (Liverpool boss) Brendan Rodgers.

"He gets slaughtered for whatever he says, but he's got to protect the player and protect the club. He is in a difficult situation.

"The boy is some player but he's got to learn his lesson now and this has got to be the last time he does something as stupid as that."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
