The FA gives Liverpool more time to respond to two charges

Jay Spearing is sent off against Fulham
Jay Spearing was the third Liverpool player to see red this season

Liverpool have been given more time by the Football Association to respond to the two charges that followed last week's 1-0 defeat at Fulham.

The club were charged with failing to control their players following the sending off of Jay Spearing.

Striker Luis Suarez was charged with improper conduct over an allegedly abusive hand gesture.

The Reds were originally given until 1600 GMT on Monday to respond but have now been given an extension.

Suarez, who scored the winner against QPR on Saturday, is still the subject of another FA disciplinary case after he was charged, last month, with racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in October.
