The Football Association have charged Luis Suarez with improper conduct after his one-figured salute to the Fulham fans following Monday night’s game at Craven Cottage.

The Uruguayan striker gestured to supporters in the Johnny Haynes Stand as he left the pitch after the final whistle after Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat. He has until 4pm on Monday 12 December to respond to the charge.

Liverpool have also been charged with failing to control their players after Jay Spearing’s red card in the same game. Players surrounded referee Kevin Friend after he showed Spearing a straight red for a lunge at Moussa Dembele, with goalkeeper Pepe Reina sprinting out of his area to remonstrate with the official. Liverpool also have until 4pm on 12 December to respond to that charge.
