Luis Suarez’s spat with Mousa Dembele yesterday is an example of the only thing holding Luis Suarez from being a complete model professional.
Luis Suarez is the best striker in the league at the moment and without doubt, Liverpool’s best player.
However, his spat with Mousa Dembele yesterday in the win over Tottenham Hotspur is an example of the negative side to Suarez’s game and possibly one of the only things holding him back from being a complete professional.
He is absolutely a target for the opposition and rightly so, but if he can cut out the odd scrap, the odd dive, the odd piece of negative news then he can become a much more powerful and influential figure in English football than he already is.
He’s so important to the way Liverpool play, he has to try and cut this side of his game out, regardless of whether he has been provoked or not. Sooner or later, he’ll get himself into trouble with another suspension which won’t help Liverpool at all.

What do you think? Is Suarez better off not reacting?
