Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers fears Luis Suarez has acquired a reputation for diving that will haunt him for the rest of his career.

Suarez put in a dazzling performance at Norwich on Saturday, scoring three goals and setting up another in the Reds' 5-2 win at Carrow Road. But one thing tarnished the Northern Irishman's first victory - yet another refusal by the match officials to award Liverpool a penalty after a foul on Suarez.

"I could tell you about three or four strikers who go down in the box with very minimal contact, and all of them have had penalties this year," Rodgers said. "Everyone in the ground saw it was a penalty. Apart from the referee."
