Suarez, Liverpool punished by FA

Luis Suarez was handed a one-game 0 defeat at Craven Cottage in December.

Liverpool was also punished for failing to control its players, receiving a fine of approximately $30,000.

Suarez will immediately serve the one-match suspension and will be out for Liverpool's clash against Newcastle United on Friday.

The Uruguayan is also facing an eight-game ban and a $60,000 fine for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra, though he looks set to appeal that charge.
