The two sides of Luis Suarez were on full display Sunday as the Liverpool striker first bit an opponent's arm and then scored a last-minute equalizer for Liverpool in a 2-2 draw against Chelsea in the Premier League. In the latest chapter in his controversial career, the Uruguay international tussled with Branislav Ivanovic in Chelsea's penalty box and television pictures showed Suarez biting the top of the defender's right arm. In 2010, Suarez was banned for seven matches for biting an opponent while playing for Ajax against PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch league. Suarez, always the center of attention, also gave away a penalty with a needless handball and Eden Hazard converted the spot kick to put Chelsea ahead in the 57th minute. The striker made amends by glancing in Daniel Sturridge's cross with seconds remaining at Anfield but it failed to overshadow the biting incident that could land him another long ban. He was suspended for eight games last season for hurling racist insults to Manchester United defender Patrice Evra during a match. ''We will review it and we will comment after that,'' Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. ''Until we review it, we can't comment on it.'' The late goal denied interim Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez a winning return to the club he led to the Champions League title in 2005 and the final of Europe's top competition in '07 in his six-year stint at Liverpool. Benitez, who recently said he would return to manage Liverpool, said he didn't see the biting incident and refused to comment. The draw also means Chelsea stayed fourth and is one point behind Arsenal, having played a game less, in the race for Champions League qualification. Tottenham is a further point behind after its 3-1 win against Manchester City earlier Sunday. Oscar put Chelsea ahead in the 26th minute before Suarez supplied a superb cross for Daniel Sturridge to sidefoot home in the 52nd.
