Darwin Nunez will miss Liverpool’s trip to Old Trafford next week after receiving a red card for headbutting Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen.
The Uruguayan forward reacted incredibly poorly after being shoved by Andersen, responding with a not-so-subtle headbutt, which left the Palace star on the floor.
Liverpool dropped points again tonight to make it two draws in as many games and Nunez’s moment of madness is likely to infuriate Jurgen Klopp.

They’re already four points behind Manchester City – but still have two more points than United, so it’s remarkable to think we could go above the Scousers with a win next week.
That must be the aim for Erik ten Hag as he tries to get United on track after a shocking start to the season.
