London:

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has told police he does not wish to make a complaint after being bitten by Liverpool's Luis Suarez.

Ivanovic recoiled in agony when Uruguay striker Suarez bit him on the right arm during Sunday's 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

But Suarez apologised to Ivanovic in a phone call on Sunday evening and the Serbia international was quick to play down the incident when asked if he wished to press charges following complaints to Merseyside Police.

"Following an incident at the Liverpool v Chelsea game yesterday officers have spoken to Branislav Ivanovic in person," Merseyside Police said in a statement on Monday.

"He had no apparent physical injuries and did not wish to make a complaint."

Suarez has been fined an unspecified amount by Liverpool, with the money to be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group

But the Football Association are reviewing the incident and Suarez is likely to be charged later on Monday and could face a lengthy ban.
