Liverpool's Suarez philosophical over refereeing decisions

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who has been on the wrong end of official's decisions this season, accepts that refereeing mistakes are inevitable but hopes for more luck after the Reds poor start. Boss Brendan Rodgers revealed he had spoken to Mike Riley, head of Professional Game Match Officials Ltd on Thursday, about decisions going against them.

"There are times when the referee gets it right and others when he doesn't but that's all part and parcel of the game," Suarez said.

"It's happened in the last few games, like against Manchester United when the penalty shout on me wasn't given and then the one on (Antonio) Valencia was.

"But talking about it doesn't solve anything - the referee has a split second to see an incident.

"Let's just hope that it doesn't happen again in the future."
