The Football Association has released the following statement:
"The FA has charged Liverpool forward Luis Suarez with violent conduct.
"The charge follows an incident with Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in yesterday's fixture at Anfield (21 April 2013).
"The incident was not seen by the match officials and has therefore been retrospectively reviewed.
"It is alleged that the conduct of Luis Suarez constitutes violent conduct and it is The FA's contention that the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply is clearly insufficient in these circumstances.
"Suarez has until 6pm on Tuesday 23 April to respond to the charge, thereafter an Independent Disciplinary Commission will be convened this Wednesday, 24 April."
