Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has accepted an FA charge of violent conduct for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic at Anfield on Sunday.
However, Suarez disputes the FA's belief that the standard ban of three matches is insufficient in this instance, due to the severity of his offence.
Suarez will learn his fate on Wednesday, when an Independent Regulatory Commission, consisting of a chairperson, a former professional footballer, and a member of the FA Council, will hear the case.
The 26-year-old Suarez has regularly been embroiled in controversy since arriving at Liverpool in 2011 and was given an eight-game ban last season when he was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.
He has been in superb form this term but found himself in trouble once again when he bit Ivanovic on the arm during the second-half of Sunday' Premier League contest.
