Luis Suarez scored an equaliser seven minutes into added time as Liverpool held Chelsea to a 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday
But the big talking point after the game will not be his sublime football skill that resulted in him creating a goal and then scoring the equaliser.
Instead, his performance will be overshadowed by his antics on the pitch that saw Suarez concede a penalty due to a deliberate hand ball, and then outrageously biting Branislav Ivanovic in the arm later in the match.
Liverpool created the first chance on five minutes when Suarez's clever pass slipped in Glen Johnson, but the former Chelsea full-back could only poke his shot wide.
Jordan Henderson then volleyed over from 25 yards before Chelsea tested Pepe Reina for the first time on 20 minutes when the Liverpool keeper punched away Ramires' dipping effort.
Chelsea went ahead on 26 minutes when Oscar took advantage of slack defending to head Juan Mata's corner inside the post and the lead was almost doubled three minutes later.
Suarez saw a shot beaten away by Petr Cech before half-time and Liverpool then made a blistering start to the second half following the introduction of Sturridge for Philippe Coutinho.
Within 15 seconds of the restart, Sturridge had slipped in Steven Gerrard, whose shot was kept out by Cech's legs, and a minute later the former Chelsea forward rattled the post after a smart turn and shot.
Sturridge then drew Liverpool level on 52 minutes when he was presented with a simple finish at the far post from Suarez's superb cross after Stewart Downing had neatly flicked the ball back to the Uruguayan.
However, Suarez then gifted Chelsea the lead again on 57 minutes when he was penalised for handball from a corner and Hazard nonchalantly sent Reina the wrong way from the spot.
Midway through the second half and a tangle between Suarez and Ivanovic resulted in the Liverpool striker appearing to bite the Chelsea defender on the arm in an incident which is likely to be reviewed by the Football Association.
With Chelsea looking set to hold on for a much-needed win, Sturridge crossed from the right deep into stoppage-time and Suarez's near-post header beat Cech to earn the draw.
