PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! On his first Liverpool start, Darwin Nunez appeared to have a case of the Anfield jitters – and that was before the headbutt.Liverpool had Luis Diaz to thank on Monday night, with the Colombian dancing his way past several Crystal Palace players to earn his side a hard-fought point.But just four minutes before that piece of magic came a moment of madness from Nunez, who headbutted Joachim Andersen during a second-half altercation with the Palace defender.It went down as the first red card for violent conduct in the Jurgen Klopp era at Liverpool, and the Uruguayan – who received just his second red of his career – is now set to miss the next three matches due to suspension, at Manchester United next Monday, plus Bournemouth (h) on 27 August and Newcastle (h) on 31 August. Far from ideal with Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota both absent, although the former could return in time for the United match.More from FootballNunez gets schooled before Diaz rescues point in another Liverpool draw – player ratings15 August, 2022Chelsea and Tottenham's epic battle explains why the Super League is not dead yet15 August, 2022Why Israel is a member of Uefa and Israeli teams play in the Champions League15 August, 2022Nunez was already enduring a difficult night, missing several chances and scuffing two opportunities – one of which hit the post – as he looked to make an impression on his first start for the club.And he certainly did that, in the end, becoming just the second Liverpool player to be sent off on his home debut in the Premier League, after Joe Cole in 2010.“The story tonight is Nunez, not only the first headbutt but to then go again,” said Gary Neville on Sky Sports. “He’s properly gone for Anderson. There has been no history of that at Benfica, he didn’t get sent off there. That’s the stupidity tonight. It will be a steep learning curve for him.“That’s a proper butt to the underside of the nose. I have to say, he’ll learn a lot from that.

I cannot believe how he thinks he will possibly get away with that.“The referee is looking at the incident, and there was no other option. He could not have had a better view.”Klopp could have no complaints either, telling Sky Sports: “Of course it was a red, he was provoked but that is not how he should behave.”Asked how much Nunez let his team down, Klopp added: “He knows that now himself. I will talk to him. It makes now sense to talk now in public, it’s not the reaction you want to see.“A centre-half in the Premier League will want to do that to him, he’s a handful. We will use it [the suspension] for physical work, not punishment, to make him stronger.”
