Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has revealed that he has made peace with Liverpool forward Luis Suarez over the biting incident last season.

Suarez was handed a ten game ban for biting Ivanovic during Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield last season.

Suarez apologised for the incident which cause him to miss the start of Liverpool's 2013/14 campaign - and now Ivanovic says the pair spoke before Chelsea's 2-1 win against the Reds last month and agreed to put it behind them.

He told Serbian newspaper Blic: “Much has been written about when I was bitten by him.

“Now we have met, greeted, but we all solved (everything) immediately after the previous match.

“Back then he called me by phone almost immediately. So after this match he asked me about my injury, so we really are normal.”

Before Chelsea's recent win over Liverpool, boss Jose Mourinho also explained that he felt the incident was best left in the past.

“This was a big thing, but Iva thinks it’s something from the past," he said.

The Liverpool striker may have missed the start of the season but has been in remarkable form since his return, and became only the third player to score 19 Premier League goals before Christmas, while he is currently the league's top scorer.

Despite a summer of speculation that he could be on his way out of Anfield, Suarez put pen to paper on a new deal recently and has helped his side move into contention for a top four spot and Champions League qualification.

Chelsea meanwhile remain firmly in the title hunt, and take on Hull City this weekend.
