Liverpool striker Luis Suarez hit the headlines on Monday morning, for all the wrong reasons. The Uruguayan international had a superb game on Sunday evening, providing the first goal and scoring a late second to help the Anfield club to a 2-2 draw in a Premier League match against Chelsea.

And had he not felt the need to bite Serbian international Branislav Ivanovic's arm, fans might well be continuing to support the South American for a PFA Player of the Year award.

Unfortunately, the former Ajax star did bite Ivanovic and although he apologised for his behaviour and has since been fined by the club, a large section of football professionals, pundits and fans have been less than impressed with his actions.

It isn't the first time Suarez has pulled a Mike Tyson stunt either, with the striker receiving a seven-match ban after biting PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal, back in 2010, when he was with Ajax.

Tyson knows a thing or two about criticism after biting an opponent - he took a chunk off Evander Holyfield's ear in 1997, when the two were in the ring.

In any case, the Twitterverse has responded with a large number of hilarious memes being circulated. Check out some of these...
