Henry Winter - Daily Telegraph: "It is difficult to see how Liverpool can continue to employ Luis Suarez after his latest assault on the fabric of the game, his latest trampling on the reputation of a world-renowned club. He held an opponent and then bit him. Such an outrageous offence would defy belief except Suarez has done it before. Enough is enough. Liverpool must consider selling him."
Dominic King - Daily Mail: "Already a pariah after being found guilty of using racially abusive language towards Manchester United’s Patrice Evra in October 2011, there will be no return from this outrage ... Oscar Wilde once said that genius ‘makes princes of those who have it’ but while there is no doubting his ability, there is nothing princely about Suarez’s character or his behaviour. Chomping on Branislav Ivanovic’s arm was despicable."
Steven Howard - The Sun: "Footballers have been treated for too long as special cases and outside the rules that apply to the rest of us. Purely because they are worth so much to their clubs. Well, now is the time for Liverpool to set an example — rather than circling the wagons and appearing in absurd T-shirts as they did under Kenny Dalglish the last time Suarez embarrassed the club."
Dominic Fifield - The Guardian: "The timing hurts. This was an occasion when this arena had remembered the courage of Anne Williams, a mother who had lost her son at Hillsborough and campaigned tirelessly for justice until her death only days after attending the 24th anniversary memorial service on the Kop. It was also a day when Liverpool and Chelsea supporters remembered those who had lost their lives in Boston – a city with such close ties to Fenway Sports Group – at last Monday's marathon bombing."
James Lawton - The Independent: "What are Liverpool going to do about Luis Suarez? Is one of the great football clubs going to live on in the extreme and desperate belief that they need his talent much more than the cleansing effect of saying, "Adios hombre, thanks but in the end no thanks". No thank you, that is, to the baggage which now includes racism, egregious and freely admitted cheating and, finally, a second case of biting into an opponent."
David Maddock - Daily Mirror: "In this match, we saw all sides of a character who simply defies characterisation. There was an almost angelic poetry to his sublime play that gave Liverpool a point at the end of a game which defined drama. But more pertinently, there was the downright demonic, in the way he didn’t just bite Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, but savaged him, with a concerted slashing of demented jaws that resembled nothing less than a pitbull attack."
Paul Joyce - Daily Express: "It is inconceivable that he will not now face a lengthy suspension, though his future in English football is now on the line. This feels like one transgression too many. The stench of his ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra still lingers and it was not even the first time he has indulged in yesterday’s antics."
And a dissenting view...
Tony Evans - The Times: "One thing is certain: there is next to no morality in this game. Players drop-kick fans, toe-poke ballboys and brawl with team-mates. If they contribute to the team, their misbehaviour is soon forgotten. Despite their touchy-feely image, the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich are hard-nosed and aggressive in the transfer market. Expecting Liverpool to be any different is to misunderstand how football works."
