On his home debut, Darwin Nunez was sent for headbutting Joachim Andersen, adding to Liverpool’s disappointing start to the season.
Jim Milner’s response
“Disappointing. We got off to a good start before getting a little lost in the middle. We’re at least providing opportunities; if you’re not, that’s a greater problem. However,
it’s hardly the best way to start the season.
“When we were down to 10 men,
the response was excellent. We received support from the crowd, and [Luis Diaz] scored an amazing goal. I was not present for the occasion [when Nunez was dismissed]. We’ll stand by him,
and I have no doubt he’ll grow from it. The response was what mattered most.
Every defender in the Premier League will now attempt to wind up Nunez, according to Chris Barker.
He’ll be alright, I think, and tonight he probably learned a bad lesson. Otherwise,
he’ll score 34 goals across all competitions while accruing seven red cards—all for headbutts—while running riot all season.
For Liverpool, it could have been worse. Darwin Nunez’s head contact with Joachim Andersen put them under 1-0,
but Luis Diaz’s outstanding solo goal gave them a point. In a tense conclusion, both teams had chances to win. In particular,
when Eze and Zaha were aligned, as they were for Zaha’s outstanding opening goal, Palace were excellent: disciplined,
controlled, and frightening on the break.
As Liverpool’s disappointing start to the Premier League season continued,
Darwin Nunez was given a straight red card for a crazy headbutt.
Liverpool was once again limited to just a point after their opening draw against Fulham as they drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace in a thrilling Anfield match.
The Eagles appeared to be on their way to a historic victory when Nunez both utilised and lost his head around the hour mark,
giving the visitors the lead against the flow of play in the first half. Even though the hosts made every effort,
there was no late winner for them despite Luis Diaz’s spectacular individual effort that brought the score even minutes later.
In order to frustrate Manchester United at Old Trafford as both teams strive for their first league victory of the year,
Liverpool’s focus now shifts to next Monday.
Patrick Vieira’s usually dynamic Crystal Palace team was smothered into inactivity for 32 minutes at Anfield,
giving the impression that he had completely miscalculated. At the conclusion of the Eagles’ first serious attack,
a brilliant counterattack,
Wilfried Zaha scored the game’s first goal. Up until that point, the identical masterplan had appeared to be a dud.
“Missed a fantastic early opportunity on the volley, but things always seem to go wrong for him whenever a football is near. Unfortunately, when it wasn’t,
he lost his mind. “Brainless dismissal.”
Liverpool is even more frustrated as they lose two more points.
On his home debut, Nunez had a moment of insanity before Diaz at least gave his team a point.

ten-man Liverpool rallied to defeat Crystal Palace and earn a point.
The first half was dominated by Team Liverpool,
who ought to have taken the lead when Mohamed Salah headed directly at Vicente Guaita.
Despite being the better team,
Palace took the lead in the 32nd minute when Wilfried Zaha expertly scored off a through ball from the outstanding Eberechi Eze.
After the break, the Reds made an effort to pick up their play,
but Nunez’s dismissal for a collision with Joachim Andersen left them down to ten men.
Late in the game, Zaha hit the post when he surely should have scored,
while Fabio Carvalho and Mohamed Salah both came close.
This was a lot stronger effort than the one that resulted in the Fulham tie,
but Liverpool’s season has started off poorly with just two points after two games.
Zaha hit the post when he certainly should have scored,
and Fabio Carvalho and Mohamed Salah also had late chances to score.
Although Liverpool’s season has started off poorly with only two points from its first two games, this performance was significantly better than the draw at Fulham.
Goal. With Liverpool’s opening assault of the evening,
Zaha punishes them. Alisson was unable to stop the quick winger from converting on a one-on-one situation after Phillips passed him onside.
Luis Diaz receives a warning for a deliberate foul at midfield. His latest effort might be the best.
Darwin continues to wreck havoc in the box as the second half begins. Even though there is a strong argument for a handball in the box,
referee and the VAR team will not award Liverpool anything tonight.
