The Uruguayan, who has scored 16 goals in La Liga this season, firing Atletico to the top of the league, couldn't find the net last night as Thomas Tuchel's secured a vital 1-0 win at the Wanda Metropolitano.
He did his best to rattle the Premier League opposition, though, kicking defender Cesar Azpilicueta off the ball before diving in spectaular fashion - and doing the classic 'scream and appeal for a free-kick' gesture.
If a minute of football had to sum up the worst qualities of Luis Suarez, then the 48th minute of Atletico vs Chelsea does that perfectly.
Not calling this shit out is actually damaging to the game, so frustrating, normalising cheating man- Tom O D (@Tom0D) February 23, 2021

Suarez's antics didn't stop there, either. The 34-year-old was criticised by fans for pinching Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger during the Champions League tie.
The pair clashed following a 'coming-together' in the first leg of their round of 16 fixture on Tuesday, but it appeared to be Suarez who initiated the incident.
As the Chelsea defender ushered the ball out of play, the former Liverpool man pinched his opponent's leg and appeared to kick out in an unsavoury moment.
The German angrily confronted the forward who laughed before pushing him in his chest.

"Luis Suarez is DIRTY". This is what he did to Rudiger. He grabs Rudiger legs, pinched it, and then falls over as if, he was the victim. He is the dirtiest player in the game. #ATMCHE pic.twitter.com/DuWK5nA1B7- @CFC-Joshville (@Azum_Joshua) February 24, 2021
Both players avoided any punishment with referee Dr. Felix Brych keeping his cards in his pocket during a heated scuffle.
