You've got to feel dorry for Branislav Ivanovic. No sooner have you calmed down from being bitten by Luis Suarez, now pictures making fun of your pain have been posted all over Twitter.

Chelsea defender Ivanovic was subject to a shocking attack by Suarez, who sunk his teeth into his opponent in the second half of the 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Not only did Suarez stay on the pitch, he scored an equaliser in the dying seconds of the match to snatch Liverpool a point.

To rub salt in the wound, Photoshop pranksters have taken to Twitter to make light of the incident with different mock-ups.

One shows the Chelsea defender on a packet of cereal – All-Branislav, of course – while another has the controversial Liverpool striker on the cover of shark flick 'Gnaws.'

That's not likely to be popular viewing in the Ivanovic household…

I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here

Read Mark Webster's latest update on life in the jungle for David Haye and Eric Bristow

'This has to be the worst time EVER to be Helen Flanagan’s boyfriend', wrote Sportsmail's Mark Webster on Tuesday. He may just have a point.

Step forward Scott Sinclair.

Now I'm sure some of you will struggle to feel sorry for a man earning a reported 60,000-a-week at Manchester City, but while his bikini-clad girlfriend Helen Flanagan is catching the eye of almost every man in the UK on a nightly basis, poor Scott must be hoping she's the next one booted out of the jungle.

Still, the notoriously unsympathetic British public are having none of it. One particular tweet – which earned over 900 re-tweets – read: 'Helen Flanagan has now been picked twice in a row. Which is better than Scott Sinclair has done since joining Man City #PrayForScotty.' Ouch.

Double trouble: Flanagan was picked out for another trial on Tuesday night

Two of his former team-mates at Swansea rubbed salt in the wound as Helen struggled with the delicacies. '#PrayForScotty', posted Wayne Routledge. Leroy Lita added: 'Will you kiss her again @Scotty_Sinclair '

I'm sure he will, Leroy.

Joe Bennett cuts leg similar to Wayne Rooney injury – picture

That's a slice of bad luck: Bennett injury reminiscent of Rooney's horror cut

Aston Villa's Joe Bennett was taken to hospital for treatment on a nasty gash on his leg – much like the injury which recently ruled Wayne Rooney out for a month.

The defender was left reeling in agony after colliding with an advertising hoarding following a tussle with Gareth Bale during the match at White Hart Lane.

Villa boss Paul Lambert confirmed his player had been taken to a local hospital to have the wound treated.

He said: 'I think he has gone to hospital to get stitched up. It was quite a nasty cut.'

The deep wound on the shin of his left leg was reminiscent of the horror-injury sustained by Rooney after Hugo Rodallega's studs sliced into his thigh in August.

The Manchester United striker was sidelined for four weeks after undergoing surgery to to stitch the cut back together and revealed the studs of Rodallega's boots missed slicing a major artery by just milimetres.

The news comes following another defeat
for Villa and manager Paul Lambert felt Christian Benteke's miss proved
crucial in the defeat, which saw the visitors drop to 16th in the table.

The striker, signed from Genk this
summer, missed a free header from Gabriel Agbonlahor's cross early in
the second half after Villa intercepted Lloris' mis-directed throw.

'That was a big moment,' Lambert said.

'When you have chances like that at a place like this you have to put them away.'

Lambert's decision to field Benteke ahead of Darren Bent was a surprise one given that the England striker had come off the bench to score a crucial equaliser against West Brom last week.

The Scot defended the decision tonight, saying: 'Christian gives you a different option.

'Darren's threat is going in behind. That was the only reason why we did it.

'Tottenham's full-backs are going to bomb on at every opportunity so that's why I went with that decision.

Darren has been fine about it.'

As if watching Europe struggle to retain the trophy he led them to two years ago wasn’t bad enough, Colin Montgomerie had salt rubbed in the wound by Jack Nicklaus.

As the pair sat together in the commentary box, Nicklaus declared: ‘You’ve got to win some majors to be rated,’ before cheekily adding: ‘Oh, sorry Colin.’

Breakfast beers!

Hardly surprising there have been a few drunken oafs around considering the first outlet incoming spectators got at Medinah was a man selling bottles of the local brew from a box.

His sales pitch was a cheerful ‘Breakfast beers, breakfast beers! If you don’t start in the morning you can’t drink all day!’

Check this lot out…

One of the most staggering sights of the Ryder Cup has been the merchandise tent.

As long as a football pitch and more than half one’s width, the norm has been a queue 100 yards long to get into the snaking lines of the paying area, where 85 assistants are on the check-out desks.

This temple of consumption dwarfs its equivalent at The Open.

Barack is Bushwhacked

Tom Maynard death gave Surrey deep wound – Chris Adams

Maynard death gave Surrey deep wound… but we'll make Tom proud, says Adams

Surrey team director Chris Adams has spoken of his pride at the way his side have come together in the aftermath of Tom Maynard's death and described the late batsman as the club's 'permanent 12th man'.

The highly-rated 23-year-old died last month after being hit by a London Underground train in the early hours of the morning, shocking the cricketing world.

Maynard was one of the most popular figures in a closely-knit Surrey dressing room and his two best friends, Brown Caps skipper Rory Hamilton-Brown and England seamer Jade Dernbach have taken time away from the game to grieve.

But for Adams, the stark reality was that the county were in the middle of a packed Friends Life t20 schedule and would have to consider a return to action while the news was still raw.

As it was, they postponed just one game before taking on Essex only four days after Maynard's death.

Adams admits it was an emotionally draining experience but has been left in awe of his young side's strength and ability to return to their sport in Maynard's name.

'When something like this happens, there aren't really any books to help you. Every situation, every team, every player is unique in their own right,' he said.

'But the one constant that exists in our lives at the moment is cricket. In quite a brutal way, things don't stop… life goes on.

'The way everybody at this club has handled that has left me nothing short of proud.

'There is a deep wound in this side, we know that, and it will take time to mend. But these players will come through it stronger. The memories will stay but they will be tougher for this experience.

'Tom died on the Monday and by Thursday I had to get my head around the idea of the team playing cricket again the next day.

'You can't plan for that. You can't plan for the day you win the toss, choose to bat and have both opening batsmen breaking down in tears after a minute's silence.

'That is when you draw on your courage. To a man, every one of us was in tears and we were about to start a Twenty20 game. The essence of that moment told me how brave and courageous this team was.

'It makes them tighter as a unit and helps us all to realise how precious life is.'

Maynard was renowned as one of the brightest batting talents in the domestic game, and had already been selected for England Lions duty.

There seems to be little doubt that he would have gone on to follow his father Matthew in being selected for full international honours, but Adams believes his influence on Surrey's future goes far beyond any runs he might have contributed.

Instead, he predicts Maynard's character and attitude will serve as a lasting inspiration to his former team-mates.

'Tom was a huge member of this team, both as a cricket and as a person, but perhaps more as a person. He was loved by everyone,' said Adams.

'You cannot begin to quantify the loss of his personality in the dressing room. When he opened his mouth, a negative word never came out. It sometimes it isn't clear how much impact someone like that has until they're not there. But there are people here who want to do twice as much to recover that.

'We can take that positivity and grasp it for our team. I wouldn't say we're through anything yet, people are still hurting, but it is time to do our day job and make Tom proud of us for that because it's what he would have done.'

In what has undoubtedly been one of the darker moments for the English game – and the most challenging of Adams' career – the 42-year-old has still found some reason for cheer, notably in the overwhelming reaction to Maynard's death.

'The most humbling factor, the one that fills me with hope, is that you're not aware until something like this how strong the community of cricket is,' Adams continued.

'The messages of support from all counties and from overseas has been just amazing.

'The number of people who contacted us and who came to the funeral is testament not only to what an amazing family the Maynards are but also what an amazing family the cricket is and it makes me proud to be part of it.'

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed midfielder Anderson will be out of action for between four and five weeks with a hamstring injury.

The Brazilian has been plagued by fitness problems this season and was missing when Manchester United flew to Spain for their Europa League last-16 second leg tie with Athletic Bilbao.

United trail 3-2 from the first leg and Ferguson confirmed that Rio Ferdinand will partner Jonny Evans in central defence as Phil Jones (flu) is missing and Chris Smalling is only considered fit enough for the bench after reopening a head wound in the Old Trafford encounter last week.

Provisional squad: Amos, De Gea; Evans, Evra, Fabio, Ferdinand, Rafael, Smalling; Carrick, Cleverley, Giggs, Park, Pogba, Scholes, Young, Valencia; Berbatov, Hernandez, Rooney, Welbeck.
