Luis Suarez has accepted his 10-match ban imposed for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic, the Football Association has announced.
The Liverpool striker had been given two days to decide whether to appeal against the sanction imposed after the incident during the 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday but has not done so.
It means the Uruguay international will miss Liverpool's last four games of this season and, if he is still at the club, the next six domestic games of next season - potentially the start of October.
The FA said in a statement: "Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has not appealed the suspension issued to him by an independent regulatory commission this week.
"A three-person independent regulatory commission upheld the FA's claim that a suspension of three matches was clearly insufficient and the player will now serve a further seven first-team matches in addition to the standard three.
"The suspension begins with immediate effect and applies to Liverpool FC's next 10 domestic first-team fixtures.
"The FA intends to publicise the independent regulatory commission's written reasons in due course."
Liverpool have opted not to appeal forward Luis Suarez's 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on the arm during Sunday's 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Anfield.
