Luis Suaréz’s FA hearing is set for today as the Uruguayan striker will find out how long the FA will ban him for, after he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday’s 2-2 draw.

Liverpool’s leading scorer accepted a violent conduct charge from the FA yesterday but denied that he should be banned more than three games. So the English FA have been forced into a further hearing later today that will decide the length of Suaréz’s ban.

The verdict will be made by an Independent Regulatory Commission — a three-person board that consists of a former player, an FA official and a lawyer — who will meet via video link to decide how many games Suaréz will miss.

So we are asking you, how long should Suaréz be banned for? Vote below.

    As a Pool supporter I would like to see him sit the remaining games of this season. In the 2 games prior to Chelsea he looked jaded to me. Think he should take the next few months sorting out his anger and come back fresh in the fall.
