Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho insists that Luis Suarez remains at the mercy of his "wild nature", despite the fact that the Liverpool striker has improved his conduct in the Premier League this season.

Suarez was banned for 10 games after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in a game last season (April), but the Uruguayan has since found the form of his Liverpool career to spearhead his side's title challenge in peace and good conduct.

However, the Uruguayan was involved in a contentious incident towards the end of Liverpool's 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday -when he went down under a challenge from Samuel Eto'o after losing the ball to Cesar Azpilicueta.

The officiating referee Howard Webb ignored his appeal for a penalty, thus, enabling Chelsea to complete a victory that took them to within two points close to league leaders Arsenal, leaving Liverpool six points off the pace in fifth.

And Mourinho has blasted Suarez's attempts to win a penalty buy going down theatrically inside the 18-yard box.

"Suarez lost the duel with Azpilicueta, Azpilicueta has the ball, Azpilicueta is leaving the box with the ball, and now he (Suarez) is doing an acrobatic swimming pool jump to try to get a penalty," said Mourinho.

"Because he's so clever that he also knows that he's in the area where he has the Liverpool supporters behind (him).

"But Webb is only 10 metres away and I think the only mistake Webb did was not to give him a yellow card.

"He (Suarez) is a very nice boy, he does everything to win and Brendan(Rodgers) is doing a fantastic job on him, because he's changed," Mourinho added.
