The Football Association says it is looking at whether Luis Suárez should face a misconduct charge after the Liverpool forward was photographed allegedly making an obscene gesture at the close of the 1-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage on Monday evening.

Suárez was pictured apparently responding to supporters as he walked towards the tunnel after the game.

Kenny Dalglish, the Liverpool manager, admitted he may be forced to speak to Suárez regarding his conduct. "I haven't seen the picture and I'm not taking anybody's word for it," the Scot said after the game. "If you show me the picture and I'm convinced that what you're saying is true, then I've got a decision to make. But until you have proved it is true to me, I won't comment."

The Uruguayan could also face an FA charge over allegations that he racially abused Manchester United's Patrice Evra in October, which the striker denies.
