Patrice Evra grabbed the arm of Luis Suarez after the Liverpool striker refused to shake hands
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez embroiled himself in another confrontation with Patrice Evra after refusing to shake the hand of the Manchester United defender prior to kick-off at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils captain offered his hand to the Uruguay international, who was banned for eight matches for racially abusing the defender, but he bypassed the Frenchman and went straight to goalkeeper David de Gea.
Evra did not accept that and attempted to grab Suarez's arm to complete the formalities, but the striker shrugged him off.
Rio Ferdinand, next in line to De Gea, then refused to shake Suarez's hand.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish said earlier in the week: "People are already speculating on the pre-match ceremony, but from Luis's point of view we have spoken to him and I know he will shake the hand of Patrice Evra and the other Manchester United players before the game."
